Biography <p>I am a lecturer in the Institute of Educational Technology, sharing my time between research and supporting Open University courses. I&#39;m interested in informal and self-directed learning, mobile and locational teaching and learning practices, community based learning and hacker/maker cultures.</p><p>I am currently working on the following research projects:</p><p><strong>MAZI</strong>- exploring community developed (&quot;DIY&quot;) computer networks to support citizen engagement and collective awareness (<a href="http://www.mazizone.eu" rel="nofollow">http://www.mazizone.eu</a>). In this project we are investigating how community owned and developed computer networks might solve local social issues and sustainable living.

In this 2015 project we explored how Open University design students can work remotely over the internet with distant trainee fabrication learners (&#39;makers&#39;) based in MAKLab, Glasgow&nbsp;to collaboratively design and build full scale chair prototypes that are fabricated using industrial CNC routers. This project was funded by the Royal College of Art and EPSRC in their exploration of redistributed manufacturing supply chains, and our approach was to look at the education and training challenges (Future Makespaces in Re-Distributed Manufacturing, EPSRC&nbsp;(EP/M017591/1) ).

  • I am a postdoc researcher at the Open University working on the MASELTOV project (&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.maseltov.eu&quot; class=&quot;people&quot;&gt;http://www.maseltov.eu&lt;/a&gt;) exploring how mobile phones might support language learning and social inclusion for recent migrants to the EU. My particular focus is on incidental learning (unplanned or unintentional learning) that takes place in everyday life. The OU team, based in the Institute of Educational Technology is developing an Incidental Learning Framework, and considering how feedback and progress indicators might motivate and supporting learning. Research interests: mobile, networked, and locative learning technologies, informal learning and community based research. For my PhD research, I worked with communities that developed their own computer network infrastructure to support their activities, and explored the challenges they faced in developing sustainable local community solutions to the digital divide and supporting neighbourhood approaches to technology enhanced social interactions. I believe that networked tools may prove to be as important for supporting local as much as remote interactions. The internet may reduce the friction of space, but not the importance of place. This work continues in my participation in the Enabling Remote Activity (ERA) project: (&lt;a href=&quot;http://projects.kmi.open.ac.uk/era/&quot; class=&quot;people&quot;&gt;http://projects.kmi.open.ac.uk/era/ &lt;/a&gt;)
