Research interests

Within the general field of digital technologies and learning, my specialist research area is digitally-mediated discourse: how people interact in digitally-mediated environments and how discussion can support learning. I am especially interested in children's and young people's uses of and interactions through digital technologies. I am also interested in academic literacy and discourse, in particular the ways in which the teaching/learning of these skills may be supported through technology. Current work includes the Edubots project (https://www.edubots.eu/) which explores the potential for using chatbots in Education.
