Frank Leenaars studied Computer Science (B.Sc.) and Psychology (B.Sc., M.Sc.) and is currently a PhD student at the Department of Instructional Technology at the University of Twente. He works on the development and evaluation of innovative electronic learning environments for primary school science education using an approach based on drawing and modelling. Wouter van Joolingen is professor of dynamical modelling in educational settings. His work concerns the use of simulations and modelling in science education. His main interest is making computer modelling accessible to young children with the help of intuitive means of model specification, such as drawings and qualitative models. Lars Bollen received his PhD in 2009 at the University Duisburg-Essen on “Activity Structuring and Activity Monitoring in Heterogeneous Learning Scenarios with Mobile Devices.” Currently, he works at the University of Twente on the EU project SCY and on the project “Thinking with Inaccurate Drawings.” His research interests include model-based learning & sketching, pen-based devices in learning scenarios and (inter)action analysis.
