Cynthia M. D'Angelo
Education Researcher, Center for Technology in Learning
Cynthia D’Angelo, Ph.D., is a researcher specializing in science education, simulations, games, and learning in SRI International's Center for Technology in Learning. She is very interested in leveraging large amounts of data gathered through online simulations and games to better understand how students learn science and other STEM concepts and practices.
D'Angelo's background is in physics and science education. Before joining SRI, she was research director of the Epistemic Games Group at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, working with David Williamson Shaffer. Her dissertation work at Arizona State University with Douglas Clark involved examining how students’ understanding of vectors, vector addition, and Newtonian mechanics was mediated by representations and scaffolding questions in a specially designed physics game called SURGE.
