I am interested in how tacit and less formal, or so-called everyday, uses of digital media and related social practices are generative sources for educator’s learning and teaching. More specifically, my research attends to the ways in which educators participate in sociotechnical design processes that support their learning, and how advances in mobile media can facilitate educator learning beyond classroom walls and across multiple settings. Given my emphasis on everyday digital media practices, my research is broadly influenced by sociocultural theory, in particular theory that emphasizes the collaborative production of sociotechnical practices for equitable learning and schooling, and the ecological relations of learning that span formal and informal settings. My research is rooted in both conceptions of and commitments to educator agency; as such, I recognize and seek to amplify how educators leverage digital media for creative and critical education.
