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 2010.
