Judy Perry is the Research Manager in the Teacher Education Program at MIT. Perrys research focuses on the use of handheld computers in educational settings. Her research projects include Palm-based participatory simulations, which embed participants in game-like simulations. Perrys research also includes developing and assessing Augmented Reality simulations in which participants investigate realistic scenarios using location-specific information from Pocket PCs. Perrys currently work also involves overseeing the development of toolkits, which allow individuals to create their own location-based simulations. Perry holds a B.A. from Yale University and an Ed. M. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education concentrating in Technology in Education.
