The next workshop presenter, prof. Italo Masiello
With a research background in medical education, there I put to good use my knowledge in psychology, neuroscience and computer science, I try to understand the potential that digital technology has for teaching and learning, behaviour and communication. This is part of my new appointment as Professor of Educational Technology at Linnaeus University.
I lead a research group in Educational Technology placed at the intersection between digital technologies and learning science. Areas of interest connected to these efforts are knowledge creation, digital technology practices in education, learning analytics, mobile learning and teachers´ digital literacies just to mention of few.

Educational technology is an interdisciplinary field of research and development where educational, technical, behavioural and design sciences meet. This makes it possible to study and explore different educational process and tools and mechanisms that support these in order to find answers to what gives value and efficiency for students and teachers.
