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, computing education and human language technologies, as well as inventing digital solutions for tackling 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 the Academy of Finland, the European Commission, the European Social Fund, the National Technology Agency of Finland, and Finland's Slot Machine Association.

An important aspect of our research activities is the IMPDET online 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.
