Lucy Atkins

I am currently completing my PhD, investigating digital literacy and teachers’ professional development.  Whilst studying I have also worked as a part-time lecturer at the university, teaching on the Technology-Enhanced Practice module of the Education Practice MA.

My research interests are around the use of technology to support teaching and learning – specifically around staff development and educators’ attitudes towards working creatively and critically with technology in the classroom. My other research interests include game based learning, open badges, mobile devices and social media.

I keep a blog about my PhD journey and wider adventures in educational technology research at and tweet at @Lucyjca
