Miltos is a doctoral candidate in Information and Communication Systems program at Open University of Cyprus. Currently, Miltos is participating in an Erasmus+ research project entitled eSIT4SIP as a special scientist responsible for technical-development oriented tasks of the project. Also, he’s a research fellow at Educational Technology Lab of the University. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Aviation Science from Hellenic Air Force Academy and a Magister Scientiae in Information Systems from Open University of Cyprus. In his research, Miltos investigates whether the development and application of mobile interactive – learning/gaming tools could assist learners of all ages to both think and act spatially, based on concepts which are derived mainly from Geospatial thinking, reasoning and cognition, research domains. Furthermore, his ultimate goal is to help learners to discover and/or enhance their spatial mental skills and abilities which are pivotal for everyday common tasks and STEM sciences.
