Daniel Wendel has led the design and development of StarLogo Nova and StarLogo TNG at the MIT Scheller Teacher Education Program since 2007. His research interests revolve around meaningful computation experiences for students, with a particular emphasis on the StarLogo-style integration of computation, modeling, and complex adaptive systems. Wendel has also led the Imagination Toolbox project, training teachers to integrate computational thinking into their classes, since 2009, and has spent hundred of hours observing students’ first experiences with programming in schools. He is currently involved in two projects, Teachers with GUTS (NSF) and Model BEST (NSF), that aim to further study the integration of computational modeling into classrooms, and the impact that can have on student learning.
