About me

I currently work at De Montfort University, in Leicester, as project lead on The DigiLit Leicester Project. The project began in September 2012 and runs until September 2014, when I will begin PhD study at the University.

My research interests are around the use of technology to support teaching and learning – specifically around staff development and educators’ attitudes towards working creatively and critically with technology in the classroom. My other research interests include game based learning, open badges, mobile devices and social media.
