EDTECH // Transforming Strengths into Realities...

The edTech research group at the School of Computing, University of Eastern Finland, designs, carries out research and develops solutions for learning and development in a digitalized society. Our research involves studies of tools and models for computational thinking, digitalization, and human language technologies, as well as inventing digital solutions for tackling individual, community and societal challenges together with learners, teachers, companies, parents and other stakeholders.

Our R&D projects have been funded by prominent governmental, academic and commercial organizations such as Academy of Finland, the European Commission, the European Social Fund, the National Technology Agency of Finland, Finland's Slot Machine Association and Assa Abloy Ltd.

An important aspect of our research activities is the IMPDET doctoral study programme, which provides doctoral training around the globe. We have also launched a doctoral training hub at the College of Business Education in Tanzania for providing local support and guidance to edTech doctoral students based in Tanzania.
