This site honors the memory of Jan Hawkins, (1952-1999) who was a developmental psychologist with a cognitive, cultural, and social-interactionist orientation, and was well known for her respectful, humanistic conceptions of appropriate roles for using technology in K-12 learning environments. She had a way of asking the questions that simultaneously inspired others and gave them the confidence to move forward with innovative ideas. Her work illustrates the balance that can be achieved in recognizing the innovative, emergent properties of new technologies while simultaneously respecting the individuals and conditions of the learning environments in which these new technologies are being used. She was also exemplary in her nurturing of young research scholars in learning technologies, and has been a model for them through her research and leadership.
