Vita & Publications

A little about my research and me…

I began my work in gaming research with a M.S. in Computer Science where I was focused on developing A.I. and Machine Learner models of human gameplay, with the intent of using those models as instruments for understanding human learning. Through that work I realized I desired a deeper understanding of human learning, which in turn led me to pursue a Ph.D. in Learning Sciences at Indiana University. Throughout my PhD I worked on the Quest Atlantis, where I developed and studied game-infused language arts, science, math, and computer science curricula, and designed online platforms and tools for in-service and pre-service teachers. The research projects connected to this work have explored game designs that facilitate critical dispositions in math, science, programming and game design as both academic disciplines and social practices.

I view learning as a process of participation in communities of practice where learners and experts work together around a common interest, and develop the necessary skills to successfully participate in society. As such, my research considers learning and technology with respect to three interrelated goals: (a) the design of inviting tools and technologies (e.g. video games, online social networks, etc.) that support learning among youth and adults, (b) understanding how these tools and technologies are used by novice learners of all ages to address personal and social problems, and (c) understanding how this process impacts learning and individual dispositions towards STEM, and in turn, informs the development of new tools and technologies that invite more people into STEM practices.

For my dissertation I developed the Playable Stories platform, as a refinement of the socio-cultural learning, design, and computing theories I wanted to explore. If you are interested in the details, I suggest grabbing a copy of my dissertation. In it you will see how I reframed programming, computational thinking, and game design using situativity, as opposed to the typical constructivist frame that is used in many novice-programming environments.
