Jason Harron

Harron Professor HeadshotWelcome to my website! I am an Assistant Professor of Instructional Technology in the School of Instructional Technology and Innovation, at the Bagwell College of Education

As an musician and designer by training, my research focuses on the intersection of creativity, technology, and the arts. I hold a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from The University of Texas at Austin, where I co-founded the UTeach Maker program and wrote his dissertation on interdisciplinary learning between artists and engineers. I have authored over 20 peer-reviewed publications, which include scholarship about the maker movement in K-12 education, Facebook and Twitter as an additional social space in MOOCs, agent-based modeling, and virtual reality in pre-service teacher education. My current scholarly interests include enriching STEM and the arts through creative computing, investigating how the pandemic has impacted the maker movement in K12 education, and exploring how AR/VR-based models and simulations alter perspective-taking.
