Dr. Alissa Antle is the founder and director of the Tangible Embodied and Child Interaction (TECI) Research Lab in the School of Interactive Arts and Technology, Simon Fraser University, Canada. As an innovator and scholar, her research investigates how new forms of interactive technologies can support, change and augment the ways that children learn, develop and connect. In parallel she investigates and provides guidance on issues of ethical concern that arise during research and development of new technologies for children. 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 self-regulation to disadvantaged children.
