Welcome to the DevTech Research Group!

The Developmental Technologies Research Group, directed by Prof. Marina Umaschi Bers at the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Development, Tufts University, aims to understand how new technologies can play a positive role in children's development and learning. Our research involves three dimensions: theoretical contributions, design of new technologies and empirical work with populations to test and evaluate the theory and the technologies. Developmental technologies are computational tools and technologically-rich interventions purposefully designed and used with the goal of supporting young people in their developmental quest.
