This project focuses on building technology for law enforcement working on human trafficking cases. We leverage available data to build tools that help law enforcement identify potential victims and collaborate with partners to best intervene in these cases.
The concept that people learn best when they are making something personally meaningful - also known as constructionism - is the lab's guiding philosophy. Computer networks have the potential to facilitate community-supported constructionist learning. The Electronic Learning Communities Lab examines ways communities of learners can motivate and support one another's learning experiences.
