Jason A. Chen is the Gerdelman Family Term Distinguished Associate Professor of Educational at the William & Mary School of Education. The questions that drive his research have to do with the variety of ways innovative technologies can be used as a tool for motivation, engagement, and learning. Rather than assuming that technology is inherently motivating for students (it's not!), Jason is interested in understanding how to design learning environments (especially digital ones) to direct people’s motivation toward difficult learning tasks.
