Frances Wijnen graduated in 2014 for her master Instruction, Learning and Development (Psychology) at the University of Twente. Her thesis focused on learning from erroneous models in secondary education. She compared this new method of learning by modeling with two commonly used ways of learning by modeling: building a model and simulating a model.

Frances currently works at the University of Twente as a junior researcher and is involved in the project: Expressive Agents for Symbiotic Education and Learning (EASEL). Furthermore she studies the attitude of primary school teachers towards the use of new media in the classroom.
