About Me (Bio)
I am a research scientist and project coordinator on one of DevTech's new projects: Scratch Jr. I defended my Master's thesis in September, 2011, on the relationship between children's level of cognitive development and their approaches to and achievement in programming with CHERP. (See http://ase.tufts.edu/DevTech/tangiblek/ and http://ase.tufts.edu/DevTech/tangiblek/research/cherp.asp). I spent the last two years working on the TangibleK Robotics Project. I am interested in how children use technology from a cognitive perspective and in designing new technologies that afford rich and accessible materials for construction and exploration.
