According to the authors, "studies on teacher-student interaction (TSI) support tools often focus on teacher needs while neglecting student needs and autonomy." This raises the question of how to enable student needs to be expressed during a class session. They describe the development and testing of a tool called NaMemo2 (built on NaMemo, a tool for remembering student names) to address this need. In so doing they propose a TSI framework called STUDIER (i.e., Sparking, Targeting & Understanding, Designing & Implementing, Evaluating & Refining). NaMemo2 is based on an augmented reality (AR) tool "that allows students to convey their willingness to interact to the teacher as well as show their names to the teacher in physical classrooms." 36 page PDF.
