Eleni A. Kyza is Associate Professor in Information Society with the Department of Communication and Internet Studies at the Cyprus University of Technology. She is the program director of the master’s program “New Technologies for Communication and Learning” and she leads the Media, Cognition, and Learning Research Group. Her research interests focus on the investigation of computer-supported collaborative inquiry learning and the design of technology-enhanced learning environments at different levels of education to support motivated, meaningful and reflective practices. Her current research areas include scaffolding inquiry learning in non-formal and informal spaces using augmented and mixed reality technologies; computer-supported collaborative learning; participatory design with teachers and students; digital media and information literacy, and integrating active and responsible citizenship in young people in science education inquiry learning environments. With her collaborators, she has developed two inquiry learning software, which have been used in multiple inquiry research projects: the web-based, reflective inquiry, learning and teaching platform STOCHASMOS, which, among others, enabled the investigation of scaffolding to support middle school students’ scientific literacy practices and inquiry-based learning, and TraceReaders, an augmented reality platform for scaffolding students’ inquiry learning in informal contexts. Her work has been funded by the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation and the European Commission. She is the Editor-in-Chief for the Instructional Science journal. Since 2015 she has been an elected member of the European Association for Research in Learning and Instruction (EARLI), where she is currently serving as the President-Elect. She is past-president of the International Society of the Learning Sciences (ISLS) and an Inaugural Fellow of ISLS. Dr. Kyza has a Ph.D. degree in the Learning Sciences, with a specialization in Cognitive Science, from Northwestern University, USA, a master's degree in Technology in Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, USA, a B.Sc. in Education, with a concentration in Educational Media and Technology, from Boston University, USA, and a Teacher's Diploma from the Cyprus Pedagogical Academy.
