Learning Sciences

The International Society of the Learning Sciences (ISLS):

ISLS is a professional society dedicated to the interdisciplinary empirical investigation of learning as it exists in real-world settings and how learning may be facilitated both with and without technology:
1. Research:
2. Journals:


IJCSCL, The International Journal of Computer Supported Collaborative Learning; Published by Springer, ijCSCL publishes papers reflecting the interests of the international CSCL community (ijCSCL has earned an ISI Impact Factor of 2.692 for 2009)


LearnLab - The Pittsburgh Science of Learning Centers research facility, LearnLab, makes use of advanced technologies to facilitate the design of experiments that combine the realism of classroom field studies and the rigor of controlled laboratory studies.

Virtual Math Teams (VMT)Project:

Virtual Math Teams (VMT) is a research project that I have directed since its inception in 2003 at the i-School and the Math Forum at Drexel University in Philadelphia. A group of PhD students, Math Forum staff, interdisciplinary faculty and visiting researchers collaborate on the project. We are developing an online service for math students to meet in small groups online to discuss challenging mathematical topics.
