Research Focus:

 

The LINKS Mission - Learning in a Networked Society – is committed to generating a critical mass of research that will bring about a paradigm shift in preparation of citizens for lifelong learning in today's information-based, networked society. 
LINKS researchers have identified three central areas regarding learning in technology-enhanced communities which they expect to have the greatest potential to produce novel outcomes: (a) ways in which shared knowledge and understanding develop in technology-enhanced communities; (b) ways in which technology-enhanced communities build shared practices, norms and regulations; and (c) ways in which technology can foster learning within and between a diversity of people from various sectors of society. LINKS researchers will work collaboratively to produce groundbreaking research in these three areas and will explore their interconnections.
An integral part of the LINKS mission is contributing to the community by accessing digital gaps at the community level, implementing and evaluating technologies of learning and play in schools, and providing professional development of teacher-trainers in collaboration with the Israeli Ministry of Education.  In addition, by allocating resources to community outreach LINKS researchers will lead activities that will directly impact youth in periphery communities and underprivileged settings.
