Dr Sue Cranmer


Research Overview

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