Individualized Interventions Lab

The overarching goal of the Lab is to develop psychological interventions that improve the educational prospects of children. We are convinced that interventions are most effective when they are tailored to the individual child. Effective individualization not only considers the cognitive prerequisites of a learner at a particular point in time, but also takes into account that these prerequisites may change quickly. Such a dynamic form of individualization is made possible by the advent of educational technologies. We, thus, make extensive use of technology that helps to integrate individualized interventions into the daily routine of school children.

In our research, we focus particularly on two prerequisites that are known to develop rapidly across childhood: children’s prior knowledge and their self-regulatory abilities. We develop and test methods to successfully activate prior knowledge in children, which facilitates knowledge acquisition. We also develop and test interventions that improve children’s self-regulatory processes during learning.
