Bio

Tom Moher is an emeritus associate professor of Computer Science and Learning Sciences at the Learning Sciences Research Institute, University of Illinois at Chicago. Moher's research focuses on the design of learning technologies to support young classroom learners in their construction of understandings surrounding STEM domains, with a particular emphasis on the use of embedded and mobile technologies that afford embodied interaction and knowledge construction. He is best known as the creator of the "embedded phenomena" genre, which immerses learners in distributed spatial simulations that become the objects of collective inquiry
