Interactive Technologies Group

The GTI (Interactive Technologies Group) is a research group within the Department of Information and Communication Technologies at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. The GTI focuses on human aspects and technology, especially those related to enhancing people’s use of computer technologies, including technological and HCI research. The group integrates researchers in the areas of Technology Enhanced Learning, Human-Computer Interaction and Advanced 3D Graphics.

The interdisciplinary research and technical skills of the GTI have been applied in a wide range of contexts, from design and implementation of robots and telematics applications to controlled and observational evaluation studies in different educational contexts (primary, high school, university, adult education). The areas where the strengths of the group are particularly noticeable in the recent years are related to learning interoperability specifications, augmented information access, the design of orchestrated computer supported-collaborative learning activities in the classroom and beyond,  digital inclusion, expressive avatars in media and serious games.
