The scientific publications are related to the following thematic areas:

  1. Design of technology-based learning environments (Modelling systems, Intelligent Tutoring Systems, Collaborative systems, Mobile Technology and Augmented Reality applications, Distance Learning Platforms/Learning Management Systems etc.). Some of them concerns the field of sciences education. In all the cases, the main purpose is to enrich the learning contexts, supporting active and interactive learning experiences and offering new cognitive tools, as well as through significant collaborative and social practices.
  2. Design of “Learning Analytics” applications and especially on the direction of ‘Interaction Analysis’ supporting awareness and self-regulation (see also all the related publications into the specific section).
  3. Web and Social media: learning issues and critical literacy
  4. Design of Learning Activities and corresponding Students’ Worksheets. Study of Teachers’ roles and strategies.
  5. Learning effects of technological environments. Evaluation of technology based learning environments.
  6. Implementation of ICTs in genuine educational contexts, in a large variety of education levels (from pre-primary to vocational education).
  7. Educational Policy concerning ICTs in Education.
  8. Technology-based Learning Communities and highly interactive Distance Education Programs
