Ivan Jorrin Abellan

picture jorrinWelcome to my website! I'm Professor of Educational Research in the Department of Secondary and Middle Grades Education, at the Bagwell College of Education.

I am a passionate learner who loves teaching, research and innovation. I have expertise in qualitative research methods with extensive experience teaching and researching innovative uses of technology in Education. I´ve worked for twelve years (2001-2014) at the Intelligent & Cooperative Systems Research Group at the University of Valladolid (Spain), where I got my Ph.D in Educational Technology. Within this transdisciplinary team formed by engineers, computer scientist and educators, we developed a number of innovative technologies to support teachers in the complete lifecycle of collaborative learning environments. In 2009 after a two-year Fulbright scholarship at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I founded the Center for Transdisciplinary Research in Education (CETIE) at the University of Valladolid. In 2014 I was hired by Kennesaw State University (Ga) where I have recently developed the Hopscotch Model; a theoretical model and a webtool based on Google technologies, to help novice researchers generate qualitative research designs.
