Dr Sue Cranmer


Research Overview

My main interests are in digital technologies, social justice and in/equality. In particular, my work focusses on how inequalities may be manifested and reproduced in everyday uses of digital technologies. Previous projects have included research into digital inclusion, digital pedagogy, inclusive pedagogical design, digital literacy including online safety; and digital innovation. I am currently writing a book 'Disabled Children and Digital Technologies. Everyday Practices in Childhood.'
