is director of the London Knowledge Lab, an interdisciplinary centre of the Institute of Education within University College London. He is Professor of Mathematics Education at the UCL-IOE, holding a master’s degree in pure mathematics and a PhD in mathematical education. He was co-founder and deputy scientific manager of Kaleidoscope, the European network of excellence for technology enhanced learning, and was the director of the UK’s Technology Enhanced Learning Research Programme, funded jointly by the ESRC and EPSRC. His research has focused on the design of constructionist computational environments for learning a range of ideas – mostly mathematics-related. He has extensively researched the kinds of knowledge needed by employees in technology-rich workplaces, and appropriate ways to harness technology to foster this knowledge.
Upshot: Constructionism must return to its epistemological roots to make any lasting impact on education. Constructionism should be transformed from a framework of action into ways to conceptualize and record what people actually do in constructionist environments so that theories of knowledge-building acts can be tested and the designing of those environments can be made more effective.
