ABOUT ME

Kylie Peppler is an Assistant Professor of Learning Sciences at Indiana University, Bloomington. An artist by training, Peppler engages in research that focuses on re-conceptualizing the divide between formal and informal learning practices at the intersection of the arts, computation and new media. Peppler completed her Ph.D. at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), studying the media arts practices of urban youth at a Computer Clubhouse in South Los Angeles. During this time, Peppler was involved in the study and development of Scratch, a media-rich programming environment, which resulted in numerous journal articles as well as a recent co-edited book titled, The Computer Clubhouse: Constructionism and Creativity in Youth Communities (Teachers College Press, 2009). The National Science Foundation, the Wallace Foundation, the Spencer Foundation, the U.S. Department of Education, as well as the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation's Digital Media and Learning Initiative have supported Peppler’s research on media arts in youth communities.
