Alissa N. Antle's research interests

Alissa Antle is an innovator and scholar, whose research pushes the boundaries of computation to augment the ways we think and learn. As a designer and builder of interactive technologies, her goal is to explore the ways in which these innovations can improve, augment, and support children’s cognitive and emotional development. Her interactive systems have been deployed to facilitate collaborative learning about aboriginal heritage, sustainability and social justice; improve learning outcomes for dyslexic children; and teach emotion-regulation to disadvantaged children. In 2015, Alissa was one of 48 scholars inducted into the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists, acknowledging her as one of Canada’s intellectual leaders.

Tangible, Embodied, Child Interaction (TECI) Research Group

Research through design at TECI: Creating innovation, knowledge and social impact in tangible and embodied computing.

If you are interested in finding out more about joining the TECI Lab as a graduate student under my supervision, I recommend heading our prospective students page, and perhaps chatting with some members of the lab.
