Originally from Vancouver, I completed a B.A in Anthropology and a B.Ed at the University of Victoria, then spent seven years in Calgary teaching and coaching teachers on using technology. I then moved to Oxford, where I completed my M.Sc., researching the role of social media in the academic and social lives of postgraduates. My current interests focus on how digital technologies and new media are impacting learners’ formal and informal learning experiences. I’m a consummate geek, and in my spare time I hang out with my husband, son, and the world’s largest beagle, blog occasionally, and knit prolifically.
