What can I do to provide the best instructional environment for my students?  What actions can I take to more effectively manage my classroom and encourage constructive behavior in my students?  Vanderbilt alum and Founder and CEO of The Behavior Company Dr. Alyssa Van Camp seeks to provide support to teachers through a wearable which will provide real-time monitoring and feedback based on teacher instruction in the classroom.

In this new collaboration with the Data Science Institute, the team – composed of undergraduate students, graduate students, and Vanderbilt’s data scientists – will work alongside Dr. Van Camp in exploring state-of-the-art deep learning models for providing insight into classroom interactions based on teacher instruction.
