Jaakko Hilppö, PhD Researcher
Jaakko currently works at the Learning – Interaction – Media – Everyday (LIME) lab, lead by prof. Reed Stevens at Northwestern University. He takes part in the development and research of an alternative STEAM learning infrastructure called FUSE Studio www.fusestudio.net. In his educational psychology PhD work (submitted for review university of Helsinki) he focussed on children’s sense of agency in preschool and their everyday life. He continues working on the topics of sense of agency, agency, participatory learning structures and learning across contexts, but he is also expanding my horizons to other connected areas such as boredom, helping, interest development and learning from the learner perspective.
