The revolution will be *spoken*: Envisioning the promise of speech technology in education research
The sophistication of technologies for processing and understanding spoken language has improved dramatically, as anyone who has interacted with Amazon Echo or Skype and Google's translation tools can attest. Speech recognition, detection of individual speakers, natural language processing and more have radically improved in recent years. In fact, many lesser-known technologies can now automatically detect many features of speech, including question asking, dialog interchanges, word counts, indication of emotion or stress, and specific spoken keywords with high accuracy.

However, educational research has barely begun exploring their potential for areas as diverse as collaboration, argumentation, discourse analysis, emotion, and engagement, not to mention the discourse and conversation among students, teachers, and mentors that forms the core of teaching and learning.

Join us and help craft the forefront of this interdisciplinary revolution in education research. We will be convening an invitational workshop in Washington, D.C. on June 4, 2016 to help explore, define and launch research at the nexus of speech technology and education research.

We invite you to apply and help form the vanguard of this emerging field.
