What is ITED?
ITED is a research group at the University of La Laguna (Ref. 82937). We develop projects at the confluence of Human-Computer Interaction, Technology, and Education.
Our research has a practical approach, and our multidisciplinary team is focused on the creation of digital experiences for people, with special attention to the diversity and inclusion of vulnerable populations and learning special needs, for example, Down syndrome or hospitalized children. We also put the gender perspective in our research and in teaching, promoting the STEAM vocations.
We have developed different training activities, such as the Master in Creation of Videogames or the Master in Person-Computer Interaction, and specific courses, derived from our own research projects and/or in collaboration with other entities. On the other hand, we carry out activities of knowledge transfer to the institutions or companies which require it.
