About

The Media, Cognition and Learning (MCL) Group is a research group within the Department of Communication and Internet Studies at the Cyprus University of Technology. MCL’s focus is the study of the relation of media, cognition and learning in various educational fields and settings.

The group is led by Dr. Eleni A. Kyza and is composed by members of the Department of Communication and Internet Studies and graduate students at the Ph.D. or Master’s level.

Research in the Media, Cognition and Learning (MCL) group is structured around three main research areas: (1) Learning Sciences, (2) Technology-enhanced learning and (3) Inquiry-based learning

Research topics include among others:

  • Augmented reality technologies for learning
  • Technology-enhanced learning in inquiry-based science
  • Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL)
  • Teachers’ Professional development
  • Design-based research
  • Mobile learning
  • Game-based learning
  • Immersive technologies for learning

The MCL research group aims to promote high quality research in the context of Media, Cognition and Learning.
