Our team is interested in the cognitive, emotional, and conative processes involved in lifelong learning, and in particular in school learning. The research we develop combines fundamental research questions with themes of high societal relevance such as the influence of context on reasoning and problem-solving strategies, the expression of cognitive flexibility in children and in adults, the impact of cognitive load on performance, the role of motivation and emotions in learning, the processes of memory evocation and semantic approximations, the development of numerical cognition and language, the diagnosis of students' difficulties, or the articulation between knowledge structures, representations, and comprehension processes. These projects lead to the elaboration and evaluation of educational interventions (human, virtual-digital) aiming at the development and acquisition of knowledge.
