    Technology-supported Education

    In today’s society, self-directed and lifelong learning is gaining increased importance. Technology enhanced learning can thereby support the learner and enhance the learning experience.

    In our research, we integrate different forms of technology-enhanced learning such as the addition of gamification elements into (mobile) learning environments, and investigate their impact on the learners’ motivation, perception or learning gain.

    Social robots are designed to interact with people in a natural manner and are able to interact with people using verbal and non-verbal signals. One of their major areas of application lies in education, where they can support learners as companions, tutors or teachers. We are particularly interested in the potential of social robots in higher education and investigate different strategies to scaffold motivation, engagement and other factors that support learning.
