Stamatios Papadakis

Dr Stamatios Papadakiss has been a postdoctoral researcher in Educational Technology, with an emphasis on mobile learning, at the Department of Preschool Education at the University of Crete, Greece, since 2016. He has worked in several international and national pedagogy projects for Pre-K to 16 Education. His scientific and research interests include the study of mobile learning, especially on using smart mobile devices and their accompanying mobile applications (apps) in Preschool and Primary Education, focusing on developing Computational Thinking and students’ understanding of numbers. Furthermore, he currently investigates how a STEM learning approach influences learning achievement through a context-aware mobile learning environment in the preschool classroom and explains the effects on preschoolers' learning outcomes. He has published in scientific peer-reviewed journals and international conferences (including Computers & Education, Education and Information Technologies, and Early Childhood Education Journal) and book chapters.
