About Gizmo EdTech
Gizmo EdTech Lab examines how innovative technologies (i.e., humanoid robots, robotic systems, games for learning, pedagogical agents/avatars, virtual and mixed reality environments) can prepare students for future learning, facilitate peer learning, design relationships that act as a threshold to learning, instruction, and assessment in the STEAM and biological science subject areas.
Much of the research within the lab involves examining how technological artifacts (e.g., robots and digital games) can engage students in learning, and developing applications that test theories about conditions for learning. The lab conducts research both within the K-12 classroom environment and laboratory setting.
