Funding Source

The project funded through the UK’s Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Phase 5, funded jointly by the ESRC and EPSRC, grant number RES-139-25-0400.

The SynergyNet project was based at the University of Durham, UK. The project explored the potential of multi-touch tables in supporting collaborative learning in classroom settings. The project ran from 2009-2013. For more information, see the SynergyNet website

The studies conducted as part of this project ranged from examining the differences in interactions between paper-based and multi-touch tasks, exploration of the use of multi-touch tables to facilitate joint representations during problem solving, examining tools to support teacher's intervention during group tasks, and the emergence of leadership during collaborative tasks.
