Dr. Augusto Chioccariello obtained his Physics degree (magna cum laude) in 1980 at the University of Naples.
From 1982 to 1986, he worked in physics education at the Educational Technology Centre, UC Irvine, initially as a CNR research fellow and subsequently as project manager. In 1986, he joined CNR-ITD as a researcher and he worked on exploiting multimedia technology in design and development of learning systems in several EC DELTA projects. Since 1995, he has collaborated with Reggio Emilia infant schools, exploring the use of computational construction kits as learning tools for early childhood education. This research led to the CAB project in the ESPRIT-ESE programme. More recently he has coordinated CNR-ITD’s participation into the IST-WebLabs project.
