My Biography

Educational researcher, teacher and writer based in the UK. I teach English and Media to post-16 students in colleges in the UK, and am currently undertaking my doctorate – research into the propensity for social network sites to act as affinity spaces for remote learning, and the impact of this on the role of the teacher. I am greatly interested in the potential of the Community of Inquiry model to develop knowledge of how teachers and institutions can improve engagement and independent approaches among students. A cultural challenge, perhaps one that no technology can affect! I am also currently part of the pan-European Mobile Learning Scenarios group of higher education researchers.
