Welcome to the DevTech Research Group!


The Developmental Technologies Research Group, directed by Prof. Marina Umaschi Bers at the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human 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.
