Personal profile

Dr. Tissenbaum's research, which focuses on collaborative learning and knowledge communities, aims to understand how children develop STEM and computational literacies when engaged with technology-enhanced learning. More broadly, his work focuses on how to design transformational learning environments that combine interactive physical spaces, digital information, and collaboration between learners to envision the future of learning both in and out of schools. Dr. Tissenbaum has developed several theories on how students collaborate and learn in open-ended and exploratory learning environments.

Prior to joining UIUC, Dr. Tissenbaum worked with MIT's App Inventor lab. During his time there he advances a new approach to computing education, computational action - which is founded on the idea that while learning about computing, young people should also have opportunities to create with computing which have direct impact on their lives and their communities.
