Me and my work
I am interested in students’ experience when they are in a social learning context specifically their socio-emotional experience when communication with other students is mediated by a digital device.
Attending seminars, writing. I try to take a trans disciplinary approach so I spend at least one hour per day following up twitter leads to research publications, webinars, blog entries from neuroscientists and learning technologists and also, mainstream education. I also blog from time to time.
