New Wellcome Trust & Educational Endowment Foundation Project Print
Thursday, 09 October 2014

wellcome_logo.jpgThe £1m unLOCKE project is jointly funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Educational Endowment Foundation and it aims to test the benefits of training pupils to suspend their pre-existing beliefs when solving mathematical or scientific questions, for example correcting the seemingly logical notion that a heavy object will fall faster than a light one. This project is a collaboration born out of the Centre of Educational Neuroscience, involving Prof Denis Mareschal as the Principal Investigator, Prof Michael Thomas and Dr Iroise Dumontheil from Birkbeck College Psychological Sciences and Dr Kaska Porayska-Pomsta, Prof Andy Tolmie, Dr Emily Farran and Sveta Mayer from the IOE.  The LKL, with Kaska Porayska-Pomsta as the lead, will be crucially responsible for implementing the intervention tasks using the computer platform and the virtual character that were developed as part of the ECHOES 2 and the SHARE-IT projects.

Third International Learning Design Challenge: Move-It-Online



Led by Professor Diana Laurillard from The London Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education in collaboration with Building Community Knowledge, MirandaNet, Creative Digital Solutions and Hands-ON ICT project.



The Aim

Our 3rd online International Learning Design Challenge is about understanding the impact of taking teaching and learning activities online. We will provide ways of describing and planning effective teaching ideas, especially those that illustrate ‘pedagogically purposeful uses of technology for learning'. The Challenge is to transfer this to your own optimal way to move it online.
