Continue to explore concepts of digital identity and how our online experiences influence our learning in a digital world.

Research Interests

My research interests are centred around access to ICTs and how they facilitate or inhibit students’ participation in learning. In the past few years I have looked more closely at the role technological devices (for example cell phones and tablets) play in students learning in a developing context and the development of students' digital literacy practices. I have led research projects on digital education leadership, personal mobile devices in learning and teaching and developing e-learning professionals in Africa.
