Bio

Jeremiah Blanchard’s research focuses on computer science education and research in human-computer interaction in education. This work includes examination of programming language representations and exploration of how educational games can help students learn science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of Florida.

Previously, Dr. Blanchard served as Program Director over Game Development at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida (in the greater Orlando area), where he taught, served in administration, and developed educational and health-related games. This includes work with the National Flight Academy in Pensacola, Florida, with whom he developed flight simulator scenarios to help teach at-risk middle and high school students mathematics, physics, and history.
