Lin Lin, EdD
University of North Texas

Dr. Lin’s research looks into intersections of mind, brain, technology and learning. Specifically, she has published in areas including creativity, virtual reality, media multitasking, multimedia design, CSCL, critical thinking, computational thinking, and learning in virtual spaces.

The disruption, innovation, explosion, and merging of devices and technologies are rapidly changing the landscape of education and life-long learning. Emerging technologies, equipped with artificial intelligence, offer potential, novelty, and excitement. However, even as they expand human capacity, they can also weaken and challenge human capacity for learning and being. In this session, we will discuss how we continue to learn and how to support learning with technologies, based on research in instructional design and learning sciences.
