MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am deeply interested in the affordances of digital technologies- particularly mobile ones - for learning purposes. I also focus my teacher education practices on developing in my graduate students dispositions that foster risk-taking with technologies for pedagogical purposes. By that I mean they become used to not knowing everything first; that providing opportunities for THEIR students to experiment with tools and affordances while learning is in everyone's best interests, especially if they seek their students' feedback on a regular basis. This is an inquiry approach that privileges the pedagogical purposes of their lesson/unit design. I also research in this field, find ways to link research and practice with ICT tools and affordances to critical thinking actions in order to develop literate and independent thinkers and learners.
