The Problem of Context: The
circumstances in which ICT can support learning
Professor Rose Luckin
The London Knowledge Lab,
The Institute of Education, UK.
Rosemary Luckin is Professor of
Learner Centred Design at the London Knowledge Lab, a visiting
Professor of Informatics at the University of Sussex and an
EPSRC Advanced Research Fellow.
Her research explores how to most
effectively scaffold learning across multiple technologies,
locations, subjects and times. At the LKL she is part of a group
of researchers who share an interest in applying participatory
methods to the development and evaluation of technology enhanced
learning experiences. This work is interdisciplinary and
encompasses education, psychology, artificial intelligence and
HCI. It investigates the relationship between people, the
concepts they are trying to learn and teach, the contexts within
which they operate and the resources at their disposal.
She was appointed by the Minister
for Schools as a non-executive director of Becta (the UK
government agency leading the national drive to ensure the
effective and innovative use of technology throughout learning)
where she chairs their Research Advisory Group.
Her latest book: Redesigning
Learning Contexts, was published by Routledge in April
