Research Expertise

Description

My research concerns the study of learning technologies to understand if, when and how, they can support, enhance, and trigger actions which influence learning. It is human-centred and strives to understand behaviour and cognition to in turn, identify and harness the value technology can bring to them. I investigate theories and practices of teaching and learning to design, implement and evaluate innovative technology enhanced learning experiences and environments. Learning technologies are controversial. They're 'parachuted' in education with unfulfilled promises to revolutionise it. For instance, podcast came and went. VLEs are used as mere repositories and administration tools. Research on MOOCs concludes only 5% of registrants complete them. Despite this, there is evidence to demonstrate the right use of technologies can and do support learning. Since 2002 I have focused on mobile learning, a specialised area within learning technologies. I have worked collaboratively alongside the international authorities in the field to articulate a definition of mobile which is widely accepted (710 citations since 2009). With colleagues I have: articulated the first mobile learning classification model, encompassing educational and functional analysis, which is referential in the area (428 citations since 2006); and published one of the first studies illustrating the in-classroom use of mobile phones to support student-lecturer-student interactivity (361 citations since 2006). I have co-authored 18 peer-reviewed publications in the field and completed my Ph.D . on the use of mobile phones to support collaboration and creativity. My work on mobile learning has international visibility and recognition and I'm a leading research in the field. Since 2011, I have developed a strand of research in learning disabilities focusing on technlogies to support autistic children. This has yield well received and cited publications, EU research funding and generated media interest. My research contributes two approaches and technologies: a) A dual-adaptive learning system which supports Carers teaching social skills to children diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorders: STAK b) Whole body gestural control games which allow children to move within a 3D Virtual Space to do collaborative tasks with other children. Building on my work on learning disabilities and whole body gestural control games I'm currently investigating the use of motion detection and tracking technology to assist in the early detection of delays in gross-motor skills development in children. I have secured three year's funding from Enterprise Ireland to develop the system and the games that require children to perform graded gross-motor tasks matched with their chronological and developmental ages. This research shifts the purpose of the technology from 'remedial intervention' to 'early detection' in order to provide children better opportunities to learn. Since I joined Trinity, and even as a research assistant, I have been very proactive in terms obtaining research funding. To date I have secured €1.5 million as a PI. This is significant because: a) while much funding is available for computer science research focusing on technical development, funds for human-centred learning technology research are scarce; b) this funding was competitively raised mainly internationally and in collaboration with colleagues from the international research community. While funding is always welcome and enables my research to progress and developed, the 'time cost' associated with writing and submitting proposals and managing the funding, researches and students associated with is not an insignificant undertaking.

  • Summary
    • The objective of EDUWORKS is to train talented early-stage researchers in the socio-economic and psychological dynamics of the labour supply and demand matching processes at aggregated and disaggregated levels. EDUWORKS brings together researchers from several academic disciplines. namely: Labour Economics, Sociology of Occupations, HRM, Lifelong Learning. Increasing segments of the demand side and the supply side of the labour market are digitized, ranging from job sites and cv's at Facebook and Linkedin to extensive databases with job descriptions and related skills demands. These developments have led to Knowledge Management and educational challenges in these matching processes. Specifically, EDUWORKS will focus on matching processes at three levels and on one overarching topic: - Individual level fit between job demands - persons' abilities - Meso-level employers' demands for occupational skills versus occupational dynamics - European and national level labour supply and demand matches and mismatches - Knowledge Management for supply and demand matches

    • New Possibilities For Print Media And Packaging - Combining Print With Digital
  • Summary
    • The goal of this Action is to promote discussion on the benefits that may be achieved from novel combinations of print and digital. It will also be used to enhance innovations that will make use of the benefits of both print and electronic media as well as innovations where print and electronic media are combined. Several examples exist where successful combinations have been achieved e.g. through the use of image recognition, augmented reality or printed electronics to bring interactivity into fiber based products. To give the forest industry a competitive edge this Action will focus on new innovations by combining knowledge of the end users with most recent technological achievements. New models of ongoing change in social interaction and in the cultural products of paper and electronic media will be elaborated and proposed. The results will promote critical and theoretical discussion on the changing meanings of contemporary media culture. The Action will explore new business opportunities for the fiber based products and the value chains of print media and packaging through novel, innovative uses. It will also serve as a channel for communication between industry and academia, thus contributing to the development of new commercial applications.

    • Share.TEC: SHAring digital REsources in the Teaching Education Community
  • Summary
    • Teacher Education (TE) is a strategic field for Europe's knowledge society and is undergoing rapid evolution. Share.TEC supports this process by creating a digital environment that fosters access, retrieval and reuse of resources for TE across Europe. The underlying vision is that digital resources are vehicles of educational innovation which can help build bridges among the different cultures of the member states. The Share.TEC system will be an extendible federated aggregation of resources, providing access both to the partners' own content and to other TE repositories. This is made possible by a metadata migration process featuring semantic, linguistic and cultural interoperability. The intended users of the system will be teacher educators, teachers engaged in self-guided learning, and developers and publishers of digital resources for TE. Share.TEC will be adaptive to the specific needs of these users and take into account their professional profiles through an ontology-based approach designed to capture individual differences. Share.TEC will cover both professionally-developed, commercially-distributed content and open resources created by users, proposing an innovative model for managing their coexistence in a sustainable fashion. Efficient brokerage will be offered between federated TE resources and user demand, which is strongly influenced by a variety of personal, curricular, cultural and national factors. To improve the matching mechanism, Share.TEC will integrate a folksonomy based approach and personalisation functions such as user history. Since educational resources are typically rooted in local cultures, the project will have a strong focus on cross-cultural aspects so that users can benefit from contents developed in external contexts. User involvement will be an essential feature of Share.TEC and accordingly the project will establish a network of user communities that will continue beyond project completion, thus strengthening sustainability.

    • MOTILL: Mobile Technologies in Lifelong Learning: Best Practices
  • Summary
    • The widespread diffusion of mobile technologies in all countries of the EU gives an opportunity to develop policies addressed towards participation and social inclusion, considering that the use of mobile devices transcends age, social status, economic level, gender and ethnic origins. Despite the scientific community has highlighted that mobile learning could be a suitable methodology to support LLL, national policies have not yet taken any significant steps to integrate LLL and mobile technologies, this project will support this goal. The main outputs of the project will concern activities related to collecting, organizing and analyzing new pedagogical approaches that exploit mobile technologies for LLL. In particular, the project envisages the following outputs: . a Web Portal aimed at supporting knowledge construction and sharing of common experiences; . an online scientific annotated review database that will bring together projects, key experiences and scholarly studies on LLL experiences based on mobile technologies; . an online collection of best practices on national m-learning projects examined from different points of view, to determine their impacts on participation and social inclusion policies; . project reports, regarding methodological aspects, national policies, and technical results about the use of mobile technologies in LLL initiatives. The results of the project will be: . an up-to-date survey on the use of mobile technologies in learning and training projects in the partners' countries; . a methodological framework to analyze best practices in this context. This framework will identify the key factors and the main indicators, and will establish the principal criteria for constructing the evaluation grid; . an open space for public discussions, involving public and private institutions, research centres, educators, and trainers, on the impact of Information Society Technologies on the future of LLL. The project will involve researchers and national/local agencies in the definition of strategic plans, increasing their awareness about the possible impacts of mobile technologies on LLL, and provide educators with the technological / methodological scaffolding necessary to implement these policies. At long-term the MOTILL project should improve the rate of people involved in training programs.

    • TRUST-E: Teaching and Research in a Ubiquitous Secure
  • Summary
    • In everyday life young and old are communicating and collaborating using technology in an increasingly diverse number of ways. Research to date has investigated the use of some of these technologies to provide access to anytime/anywhere lifelong-learning while building upon developments in learning theory. Much of these implementations have focussed on providing these facilities through centralised servers accessed by authenticated clients from a small set of fixed locations. We believe ubiquitous learning requires ubiquitous computing. The project will develop a ubiquitous learning platform accessible by all modern and mobile technologies. The pedagogical underpinning of the environment will be based upon a collaborative constructionist paradigm. This platform will be flexible and scalable providing a modular framework for a variety of learning scenarios. Specifically it will allow for communication, collaboration, access to content and the interactive creation of knowledge from a variety of fixed and mobile computational devices. Appropriate interfaces and interaction models will be developed. Central to the feasibility of such an environment is a communications infrastructure that is adaptable. More problematically the environment must facilitate meaningful communication between users who may not have any prior knowledge of each other - i.e. the system must support a rich interpretation of the idea of trust in an ad-hoc mobile ubiquitous environment.

    • Logic, Programming, and Robotics for Non-Technical Students
  • Summary
    • This project is aimed at the design, development, and implementation of a holistic teaching and learning module for basic programming and robotics principles aimed at non technical students. The course adopts a constructivist, problem based, learning approach and it adopts a modified version of Kolb's experiential learning cycle which encourages the learner to go through a cycle of formulating a design, implementing that design, getting that design executed in the physical world through the means of a robot, and then reflecting upon the execution of that implementation. The module incorporates video clips to illustrate both the problem solving process and sample solutions. The clips are annotated both with text and graphical indicators of transitions within the Kolb cycle. The web site contains a set of progressively more sophisticated problems and attempting to solve these, should lead learners to gain understanding of concepts concerning programming, logic and robotics. The robotics technology used is the Lego Mindstorms Programmable Brick which was designed at the Epistemology and Learning Group at the MIT Media Lab. The brick can control a number of motors and sensors can be attached which respond to touch and light. Mindstroms allows devices to be built which can interact with their environment. This provides a technological base to be used in the learning approach followed by this course.

    • EduTxt: An Exploration of the Use of Mobile Phones in Formal Educational Contexts
  • Summary
    • Edu Txt proposes to use mobile telephones, in particular SMS, in conjunction with other communication tools such as email and wiki technology, to increase interaction during the teaching/learning process while in class as well as outside class. In particular this project will focus on three main interactions for learning: student-lecturer; student-student; student-content. This project is grounded on a Constructivist paradigm and advocates for a Social Constructivist approach in which communication, social interactions and tools are recognised as paramount in the learning process. Furthermore, it incorporates collaborative strategies to facilitate the development of higher order skills in the attempt to engage learners in knowledge construction. The project will deliver a software system that will enhance access to lecturers, peers and content via SMS text message based communication supported by a dedicated message processing server. This server will support various types of interactions as outlined above. All interaction will be stored and will be accessible at a later stage. Questions that may have been asked and answered during a lecture are available to students at a later stage for review. This data will also be available for research in education that will be used to direct the development of the platform.

    • Trinity TEL (Technology Enhanced Learning) Outreach Programme
  • Summary
    • I was the co-founder and co-coordinator for this project. Within the context of this initiative, we designed and implemented a successful model for a TEL outreach programme and developed substantial expertise and know-how in the area. The knowledge and experience acquired during this project lead to the successful funding and creation of the Bridge to College (B2C) programme which is founded in the same principles. The TEL Outreach Programme is an educational project, which gives senior cycle students (4th-5th year students) in local disadvantaged schools the opportunity to work on creative projects using state of the art digital technology. The two primary aims of the project are: 1. To break down barriers and increase the numbers of students from disadvantaged communities who go on to third level education. 2. To increase young peoples' active engagement in technical projects. The project gives its participants the opportunity to become designers, creators and confident users, not just passive consumers, of digital technology. For example instead of just playing computer games the students of the clubhouse actually build their own games.

    • Web@Classroom: Integrating ICT into the Curriculum: Investigating Teaching and Learning Outcomes in the Permanently Connected Classroom
  • Summary
    • Web@Classroom is an action-research project which aims to work collaboratively with schools and teachers from several European countries. Its main objectives are to promote pedagogical innovation and change in permanently Internet-connected classrooms and to investigate the impact of educational ICT on teaching and learning outcomes. The work plan includes teacher training activities, development of materials, data collection, work with teachers and students, data analysis, evaluation and dissemination. I was involved in most of the aspects of this project but my main contribution was in relation to the overall evaluation of the project. To this end, I designed and implemented an artefact that enables the data collection, collation, and analysis. The system also provides realtime data analysis and enables all parties involved in the evaluation to contribute to this analysis. This project was recognised by the EU's SchoolNet as example of best practice.

    • Evaluation of the Kilkenny Information Age School Initiative
  • Summary
    • In 1997 Kilkenny were runners up in the Information Age Towns Competition which was sponsored by Telecom Eireann (now Eircom). The prize fund of £1,000,000 was awarded to Kilkenny. As a result Kilkenny Information Age Ltd. was established in order to position Kilkenny at the forefront of ICT developments and to create an awareness and competency whereby people of all ages and from all social groupings can benefit from the goals of the information age society. In February 1999, the Department of Education and Science through NCTE and Kilkenny Information Age Ltd. formed a partnership to encourage the use and evaluation of ICT in Education. There are eight projects in total: 10 primary, 6 secondary and 3 special schools in the Kilkenny city area are participating in at least one of these projects. This project involved the evaluation of the Kilkenny Information Age School Initiative. Within this context, I developed an ICT mediated formative approach to enable all the participants (evaluators and evalutees) to collectively construct knowledge in regards to the project itself, as well as the evaluation process in which they were immersed. I also co-authored the final report.
