Stoo is an Educational Researcher exploring how the performance of gestures while using touch-based ICT tools affect learning and cognition – specifically related to the design of learning materials and its affect on working memory. His other research interests involve practices of university teachers in the design of technology-enabled learning experiences, the application of learning analytics to the process of designing learning experiences, and the potential for using mulitmodal learning analytics to enhance learning. He’s also a programmer, a UX, UI and graphic designer and instructional designer. Being able to walk in the worlds of research, teaching and design affords me the opportunity to explore different areas in education, cognition and the design of interfaces and learning materials.
