My research interests span the breadth of educational technologies, but are more closely focused on: personalised mobile technologies and their impact on learning and teaching; school culture and change; augmented and virtual reality and its impact on learning and education. I have a range of research projects underway pertaining to these interests.
I welcome inquiries from Masters and PhD candidates interested in: educational technologies, technology & pedagogy and technology & learning across schools, education communities and initial teacher education.
My current projects include:
- Measuring the impact of personalised technologies programs on initial teacher education and on digital capabilities
- Investigating whether there is a statistical association between ATAR and screen time
- Historical research on the relationship between pedagogies and technologies
- Exploring the comparative impact of multiple choice tests and branched scenario assessments
- Investigating the impact of campus closure on online learning engagement
