Dr. So Mi Kim has received her Ph.D. degree in Learning, Design, and Technology from the University of Georgia in 2014. Kim formerly worked for the Korean government leading large-scale educational innovations and evaluation projects for 10 years. Her program of inquiry is largely grounded in problem-centered learning and more specifically examines task-person-environmental dynamics to scaffold self-regulated learning and novel problem solving in both formal and informal learning settings. Science on the social media, argumentation and information bias, and social shadowing are exemplary keywords driving her research.
