ILKKA JORMANAINEN

Senior Researcher

I am working as a senior researcher at the educational technology research group at the School of Computing (UEF Joensuu campus).

My major research fields are computational thinking, educational data mining, educational robotics, learning environments, technology education in K-12 settings, as well as ICT for development. I'm currently supervising four PhD research work in these fields, and teaching some of the related courses at the School of Computing. I was recently leading "ICT for Education in Eritrea" project, funded by Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the HEI-ICI capacity building program. I have been involved in several EU initiatives, for example CONSTRUIT! and TACCLE3 (Erasmus+ KA2), as well as in eCraft2Learn H2020 projects. I have been playing an active role in development of the annual SciFest science and technology festival at Joensuu. I was also leading the festival for three years at the beginning of 2010s. I have gained teaching, research, and project administration experience from several international collaboration initiatives from number of European and African countries, for example Eritrea, South Africa, Nepal, Tanzania, Zambia, and Mozambique.
