I am a Ph.D. student in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at Northwestern University. I am interested in the design and development of tangible educational media through the combination of the Montessori pedagogy and embedded technologies. I am currently developing tools to help children better understand the concepts of health and medicine. Previously I have worked on creating materials for algebra, conservation, and evolution education. In all cases we work with children to learn about their needs and understandings, and evaluate and redesign interfaces based on their feedback and suggestions. Using these tools we can further research how the addition of technology into manipulative materials impacts children’s’ learning.
