Using AI to measure student engagement 

Featured Video Play Icon
The Wall Street Journal investigates how modern technologies such as AI and robotics are being incorporated into some of China’s classrooms to monitor and record student engagement levels.

The video investigates the use of brain wave trackers at one particular primary school, where students wear the devices as headbands which monitor levels of engagement and send detailed data to teachers and parents. A light at the front of the headband changes colour to reflect a student’s concentration levels.
But how well the technology can actually track concentration and the risk of false readings have brought the technology into question.
