I am an Assistant Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology in the School of Interactive Computing. I lead the Learning Ecologies Lab, which is focused on understanding the whole ecology of learning with and about technology. I am particularly interested in understanding motivations, why people choose to learn and why they choose not to.
I use many research methods, but all of my projects are initiated through studies with specific audiences around their technology use. I consider these participants as co-designers in the research and in the production of new learning environments and technologies.
Areas of Interest: Informal Learning Environments – Gender, Race, Ethnicity and Technology Use – Digital Games – Art Museums – Computer Science Learning
