LEARNING AND INSTRUCTION
Computer Science Education; Ethnography; Mathematics Education; Instructional Technology; Multimodality, Embodiment, and Digital Literacy; Science Education; Linguistic, Discourse, and Sociocultural Context; Qualitative Research Methods
In my research, I use the fine-grained analysis of video to investigate multimodal communication (especially gesture) and the role of the body in mathematics teaching and learning, as well as in computer science and science education contexts. I’m especially interested in peer and student-teacher interactions surrounding new educational technologies. My work in the learning sciences draws on applied linguistics, human-computer interaction, and sociocultural studies. In particular, my approach is informed by ethnomethodology and conversation analysis (EMCA).
