In this paper we aim to bring together research in affective computing and educational design. We review the literature and describe the design of a methodological and technical framework for studying pedagogical designs that are informed by the affective state of learners. The proposed framework integrates techniques for affect recognition using physiology and text, and describes an approach to studying the affective dynamics of collaborative activities. We aim for this exploratory work to improve our understanding of how to best design group learning activities, and then to communicate these outcomes in the form of educational design patterns.
