Online educational dialogues

We design, deliver and evaluate effective tools, methods and representations to support and extend Computer Science education for a range of learner groups.

We use our knowledge of HCI and software systems to support and extend learning processes, such as scientific enquiry and meta-learning. We work with a variety of tools (e.g., multimedia virtual environments, digital libraries, wikis, blogs, robotics) to extend teaching and learning experiences and to develop communities of students. Research topics include pedagogical design, the role of aesthetics and usability in learning, persuasive technologies, and playful and lifelong learning.
