Personal bio
Paulo Blikstein is an assistant professor at Stanford University School of Education and (by courtesy) Computer Science Department, where he direct the Transformative Learning Technologies Lab. Blikstein's research focus on how new technologies can deeply transform the learning of science, engineering, and mathematics. He creates and researches cutting-edge technologies for use in inner-city schools, such as computer modeling, robotics, and rapid prototyping, creating constructionist learning environments in which children learn science and mathematics by building sophisticated projects and devices. His research interests also include the applications of complexity sciences to social sciences and learning analytics. Blikstein has recently spearheaded the FabLab@School project, building advanced fabrication labs in middle and high-schools, and is the Principal Investigator of the Lemann Center for Brazilian Education at Stanford, a 10-year initiative to transform education in Brazil. Paulo, a recipient of the National Science Foundation Early Career Award, holds a PhD. from Northwestern University, an MSc. from the MIT Media Lab, and a B.S. in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of São Paulo.
