Amnesty International: Protect the Human

Amnesty International

MirandaNet Fellowship is not associated with any political grouping, but we support many of the aims of organisations such as Amnesty International and urge members to look at the AUUK site and see if they agree with these aims as well.

Personal Statement

My research concerns human-centred design of new technologies for learning. It involves gaining a deep understanding of how people work, play, learn and interact as a foundation for the design of novel socio-technical systems (people in interaction with technology). I was Founding President of the International Association for Mobile Learning. Iam an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Learning Technology, and am a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Learning Sciences and the Journal of Computer Assisted Learning. I have authored 200 papers in the areas of educational technology, human-centred design of personal technologies, learning sciences and cognitive science.

ICT Interests

The focus of my research is the theory, design and evaluation of technologies for learning and knowledge working

Recent Projects

I am a co-investigator on the Wolfson OpenScience Laboratory project. Previous projects as Principal Investigator include Personal Inquiry to support inquiry-based learning of science topics between formal and non-formal settings, and a collaboration with Sharp Labs Europe to develop software on mobile phones for incidental language learning.
