My research interests are focused on how digital technologies enhance learning. Related to this, I am concerned with digital inclusion to ensure that the potential opportunities for learning offered by digital technologies are available to all; and digital literacy to ensure uses are safe and productive. To provide context for this, I am also interested in understanding how people use digital technologies across the lifespan at home, at school and in other settings.

PhD Supervision Interests

I am interested in receiving PhD proposals in most areas related to digital technologies, education and learning. I'm particularly interested in digital inclusion; disengagement; disability; accessibility; social uses of digital technologies; digital literacy; online safety.

Current Teaching

I am a lecturer on the e-Research and Technology  Enhanced Learning (TEL) doctoral programme. On the TEL programme I convene ED.S822 The Development of Professional  Practice and contribute to ED.S 821: Research Methods in Education and Social Science Settings: Philosophy, Methodology, Techniques and Tools.

I also teach on PiNE 313. Topics include digital technologies for learning, game-based learning, digital literacy and online safety.

Career Details

I joined the Department of Educational Research in  September 2012. Previously I worked at Futurelab - an independent  not-for-profit organisation - for three years researching innovative uses of  technology for education and learning. Before that I worked as a researcher at the Department of Education at Oxford University and as a lecturer and researcher at the London Knowledge  Lab, Institute of Education, London University.
