Dr. Wong Lung Hsiang is a Senior Research Scientist in the Learning Sciences Laboratory. Graduated from Computer Engineering Division of NTU, he has been involved in research and/or development projects in learning technology for more than two decades. His research interests include mobile and seamless learning, ICT in Chinese Language learning, Computer Supported Collaborative Learning, and in-service teachers' professional development. In addition, he is an adjunct lecturer of Singapore Centre for Chinese Language. He is an Executive Committee member of the Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education, and the chairs of mobile learning related Special Interest Groups for the APSCE and Global Chinese Society on Computers in Education (GCSCE) respectively. He is the Singapore representative to Technical Committee 3 (e-Learning), International Federation of Information Processing, UNESCO. He won Best/Outstanding Paper Awards at AI-ED'95, GCCCE'09, WMUTE'10, mLearn'11 (2 awards), ICCE'11, and GCCCE'13 (2 awards). He is the lead editor of the scholarly book "Seamless Learning in the Age of Mobile Connectivity", which will be published by Springer some time in 2014.
