Personal profile

Research Interests

Professor Horn’s research explores the use of emerging interactive technology in the design of novel learning experiences. His projects include the design and evaluation of a tangible computer programming language for use in science museums and early elementary school classrooms; and the design of multi-touch tabletop exhibits for use in natural history museums. His most recent work has involved the design of a learning platform to support digital music production and computational literacy for middle school and high school students.
