This symposium brings together research concerning orchestration tools aimed at supporting teachers in providing real time support to students in the classroom. Orchestration tools are based on the idea of capturing, analyzing, and visualizing student activities during class time and feeding them back to teachers to facilitate real time monitoring and support of students. With examples from the contexts of individual and collaborative learning, the symposium addresses two questions, namely what information about student activities teachers need, and how teachers use orchestration tools in their classrooms. Two papers focus on the first question, and furthermore investigate how teachers respond to initial versions of orchestration tools. The remaining two papers focus on how teachers actually use orchestration tools in their classrooms. The symposium as such offers examples of state of the art research and ample opportunity for discussing future directions in the field of teacher orchestration tools.
