MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
Dr. Matthew Kearney currently teaches across two programs in the faculty. He coordinates the e-learning related subjects in the BEd (Prim) and GradDipEd (Sec) programs and is interested in innovative technology-based learning in K-12 and teacher education contexts.
His research and development interests are in the area of e-learning. He is a member of the faculty's Designs for Learning research cluster and has recently completed the following funded projects:
- Developing pedagogy using student-generated digital video with 1 other colleague (2004).
- Investigating pedagogy using interactive whiteboards with 1 other colleague (2006).
- Teachers as e-learning designers with 2 other colleagues (2006).
His PhD thesis (2002) focussed on the he design and use of multimedia supported predict-observe-explain (POE) tasks in science learning. In 2002, he also contributed to the ICT-based Learning Designs Project by describing the learning design behind multimedia-based POE tasks, and also by designing and developing (downloadable) POE e-shells (see http://www.learningdesigns.uow.edu.au/tools/info/T3/index.html ) - generic tools that can be used by educators to build their own multimedia-based POE tasks using a web page editor. Further information, including publications can be found via his website.
