Welcome at CSLEARN - Educational Technologies

Our mission is to support learning ideas, concepts, techniques, and a broad range of interdisciplinary applications of computer science in a way that is engaging, inspirational, and formative for all actors involved in the learning process. This creates the foundation for well-informed, knowledge-based, and mindful professional action. Rooted in technology-enhanced computer science learning and research at an academic level, we aim to transfer our experience to formal and informal life-long learning for a vast variety of target groups and subject areas, including students, children, migrants, medical doctors, social workers, managers and people with special needs. In particular, we address and research the rapidly changing challenges urgently needed to be met by educators at the secondary level, by academic staff, by curriculum designers, and by managers and consultants. Our slogan is: 

“Let’s embrace computational thinking and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as powerful learning accelerators, advance them, and open them up for ever more people and wiser action.”

Our current key areas of research and interest include:
Increasing engagement, effectiveness, and motivation to learn:

  • Person-Centered technology enhanced Learning (PCeL)
  • learner-centered approaches to computational thinking and developing professional skills
  • significant learning communities (SILCs)
  • language technology
  • game-enhanced learning of computer science concepts
  • technology-enhanced mentoring
  • neuroscientific foundations of experiential learning

ICT for inclusion:

  • Human-Centered Design applications for learners with special needs
  • mobile language-learning apps, e.g. for newcomers to Austria
  • online web-services for newcomers to Austria
  • Life-long learning of digital competencies and programmimg

Other contemporary themes such as:

  • Learning analytics, statistical methods for evaluating learning
  • 3-D print as emerging technology and demonstrative motivator for modeling and coding
  • Communication in agile management and diverse teams, cross-cultural communication and facilitation of significant learning
