Noel Enyedy

Professor, Science Education, Department of Teaching and Learning

Professor Enyedy studies how people learn through social interaction.  He often engages in Design-Based-Research and creates new teaching and learning contexts where teachers and students have opportunities to learn. From the records of their learning (often video taped interactions) Enyedy strives to understand how learning is organized.  For the last 10 years, Enyedy has been pioneering the use of mixed reality environments—where physical motion of children moving around a room is used as the input for a computer simulation.  The intent of the mixed reality participatory simulations is to spark conversations between students and support instructional conversations in productive ways.
