Research & Publications

Research from Teaching

I am interested in the technical, social and pedagogical affordances of educational Web 2.0. In particular, I examine how technology-mediated pedagogies change to suit the learners, technology, environment, etc.

I actively use wikis, blogs, Twitter, online mind maps, the Google Apps suite, Facebook, Prezi, SlideShare, etc. I have also dabbled with VoiceThread, podcasting, screencasting and sketchcasting, amongst other things.

When I was the Head of the Centre for e-Learning (CeL), my agenda was to promote learning that is social, open and mobile.

On the side, I am interested in video game-based learning, mobile learning, surface computing… just about anything related to educational technology!

The research team project which I was part of was Pre-Service Teachers in a Ubiquitous Computing Environment: One-to-One Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL).

Footnote

My capacity to conduct and publish research took a hit when I was appointed Head of the Centre for e-Learning in July 2010.

While I have not written and published like a traditional academic, I have contributed to the pools of knowledge in my field by blogging and tweeting daily, presenting at local and overseas conferences, and delivering keynotes.

While at NIE, my work as an appointment holder and administrator honed my skills in writing concept papers, strategic planning documents, and implementation reports. I continue this work as a consultant with representatives of educational institutions who value praxis over rhetoric.
