Professor Chronis Kynigos from the University of Athens is SLATE’s newest Professor II.
Kynigos’ own biography states:
"Chronis Kynigos is a Professor at the University of Athens, Greece, and Director of the Educational Technology Lab. He has studied the processes of design of constructionist technologies and classroom interventions, mainly for mathematics education. He has also studied teachers’ pedagogies and epistemologies in Teacher Professional Development courses and students’ classroom interactions in social contexts involving constructionist activity. He has been responsible for the design of pedagogical specifications of several constructionist media – E-slate, Turtleworlds, and the 3D Ma.L.Turtleworlds amongst them. He co-organized the “Constructionism” conference in 2012 and 2014. He has been a member of the European Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence (2004–2008) and responsible for the “Remath” and the “M C Squared” European projects integrating constructionism R&D work. He led the mathematics component of the Greek Education Ministry’s “Digital School” initiative infusing constructionism into the design of more than 1500 “micro-experiments’ for mathematics."
Kynigos will participate in SLATE's study of adaptive learning in mathematics in Norwegian schools.
