Short Bio

Edith K. Ackermann was a Honorary Professor of Developmental Psychology at the University of Aix-Marseille, France, and Visiting Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology School of Architecture, Design Laboratory. She taught graduate students, conducts research, and consults for organizations and institutions interested in human learning, imagination, and creativity. She liked to work with designers, educators, scholars, and policy-makers committed to rethinking what it means to be knowledgeable, literate, or skilled in today’s digitally saturated world – and what it takes to become so. Recent collaborations included the LEGO Learning Institute, OLPC, INVIVIA, the PIAZZA and PUENTE EU Projects, and the Exploratorium Science Museum, San Francisco, where she was granted an Osher Fellowship and an “Outstanding Educator” Award in 2010. She passed away on 24 December 2016.
