I am happy to announce that my research program on Computing Education is growing stronger with two new PhD students (Christina Ilioudi, Alexandros Merkouris) who are joining Varvara Garneli. They will work together with schools in order to enhance computing education as well as learning through computers.

During Spring Semester 2013 we are happy to host Elaine Hayashi, who is a PhD student on educational technologies from the Institute of Computing, at the University of Campinas, Brazil. We are working together with local schools in order to evaluate the adoption of computer education with a focus on affect and the Scratch programming environment.
We are happy to announce that our workshop proposal (Analytics on Video-Based Learning) has been tentatively accepted at the 3rd International Learning Analytics & Knowledge Conference (LAK 2013), which takes place at Leuven, Belgium 8-12 April 2013. We are going to set-up the workshop site and announce the call for papers early 2013.
Michail N. Giannakos has been awarded a prestigious ERCIM fellowship, which is also supported by the Marie Curie program. He is going to work with our long-time collaborator Prof. Letizia Jaccheri, at NTNU, Norway. He is currently a Richard T. Cheng Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Computer Science at Old Dominion University, Virginia, USA. Before that, Michalis spent more than two years doing research in the context on project CULT. It is great to see the legacy and the synergy between CULT and NTNU continue!
