Growing Up Digital: New Lab in Calit2 Looks at the Smartphone Generation


UCI News covers a feature on the Connected Learning Lab in Calit2's Interface magazine by Shelley Nazarenus:

Scientists, educators and parents may well wonder about the effects the digital age is having on the nation’s youth. And with technology changing so rapidly, can the research keep up?

That’s the aim of the Connected Learning Lab in the California Institute for Telecommunications & Information Technology at UCI, where interdisciplinary researchers are putting their heads together to better understand how young people are using digital technology and then leverage that information to improve educational approaches. Twelve faculty – across informatics, education, anthropology, psychology and the humanities – bring their own research, specialized knowledge and students to the task.
