Associate Professor
Educational Technology
Department of Curriculum & Instruction

Research

Professor Kim's research focuses on scaffolding students' problem solving with technology-enhanced learning environments, advancing pedagogical frameworks for learning and teaching in technology-rich contexts, and integrating emergent technologies (simulations, games, and social media) into formal and informal learning environments. Professor Kim is investigating effective pedagogical strategies for learning and teaching in online, blended, and face-to-face settings with technologies.
