UCL is one of the world’s leading universities, founded in London to open up education to all on equal terms.
UCL Knowledge Lab (London Knowledge Lab)
Our mission is to understand and to develop digital technologies to support and transform education, and beyond. Based on research evidence, we devise new pedagogies, design and implement innovative digital media and smart technologies for teaching and learning, and inform policymakers and educational stakeholders.
The London Knowledge Lab is a unique collaboration between two of the UK’s most prominent centres of research – the UCL Institute of Education and Birkbeck.
Issues can be tackled from many different perspectives, and this is reflected in our mission, to understand the place of digital technologies and media in our cultural, social and educational relationships with knowledge – finding, acquiring, creating, and sharing it; Design, build and evaluate systems, processes and interfaces that enhance these relationships; and examine critically the assumptions about knowledge and learning that underlie the increasingly wide range of applications of digital technologies.
