London Knowledge Lab
VeSeL is led by Rose Luckin, Professor of Learner Centred Design at the London Knowledge Lab. Other LKL members on the project include Darren Pearce, Josh Underwood and Kevin Walker.
The London Knowledge Lab is a unique collaboration between two of the UKâ€™s most prominent centres of world-class research â€“ the Institute of Education and Birkbeck. The Lab brings together computer and social scientists from a very broad range of fields, including education, sociology, culture and media, semiotics, data mining, information management, personalisation and ubiquitous technologies.
This means that issues can be tackled from many different perspectives, and this is reflected in our mission, to
â€¢ Understand the place of digital technologies and media in our cultural, social and educational relationships with knowledge â€“ finding, acquiring, creating, and sharing it;
â€¢ Design, build and evaluate systems, processes and interfaces that enhance learning, both formal and informal, throughout life; and
â€¢ Examine critically the assumptions about knowledge and learning that underlie the increasingly wide range of applications of digital technologies.
