Personal profile

Research Interests

My research area is located at the intersection of interactive/immersive technologies and Critical Media Literacy. My PhD examined the implications of introducing interactive documentary in a series of Critical Media Literacy interventions with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and proposed a “Pedagogy of Difference 2.0” for teaching and learning with interactive documentary. My current research explores the use of immersive technologies in community settings and media literacy. VR Kaleidoscope involved young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in the creation of Virtual Reality (VR) films. My most recent project Journey > Arrival explores the use of immersive audio to convey and interpret the stories of refugees.
