Bio

Jim Slotta holds the President’s Chair in Knowledge Technologies at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto. His team investigates new models of K-12 STEM inquiry, including powerful new roles for technology-enhanced learning environments. These studies have advanced a pedagogical model known as Knowledge Community and Inquiry (KCI), in which students and teachers collaborate as a learning community to engage in STEM inquiry projects. KCI activities are scaffolded by smart classrooms and distributed learning environments, in which students develop a shared knowledge base that supports their inquiry. Slotta directs the ENCORE lab (http://encorelab.org) in which KCI curriculum and technology environments are developed and researched.
