Welcome to the Learning, Education, and Development Lab (LEAD Lab) at Indiana University, Bloomington!
Children’s knowledge is continuously changing as they observe and interact with people and the world. In the LEAD Lab, our research focuses on the construction and organization of that knowledge with an emphasis on how children learn and solve problems in mathematics. We are motivated by a question facing scientists, psychologists, educators, and parents: How can we support children’s learning so that it leads to the creation of robust and meaningful knowledge?
Our lab’s primary goal is to conduct studies in cognitive development with a focus on the development of mathematics knowledge and problem solving.
Our focus is to better understand how the learner and the learning environment interact to produce positive changes, especially in mathematics.
