Daniel Spikol is Senior Lecturer of Media Technology at the School of Computer Science, Physics and Mathematics. He also is a researcher at the Center for Learning and Knowledge Technologies (CeLeKT) at the university. His current research interests include the design and development of mobile and ubiquitous environments that explore different modes of collaboration that foster formal and informal inquiry-based learning and epistemic gaming. Spikol is interested in expanding the role of design to support understanding how people can navigate across physical and learning spaces in active and creative ways that go beyond media consumption. He is presently involved in a number of European and National projects exploring how mobile and wireless technologies can be used to support new ways of learning and how these technologies can support groups of learners when they, collectively, share and reflect about their understanding in these learning environments. One of his objectives is to explore how open standards between different devices and software can be leveraged to support and orchestrate collaborative learning. Previously he has worked for the Interactive Institute that is part of the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS), founded and ran a design agency and was a creative director for the LEGO group.
