Teachers’ narrative ecologies of professional development with digital technologies

    Activity: External talk or presentationInvited talk


    There is something dangerously presumptuous about researching ‘other’ people’s experiences and learning. I argue that narrative methodologies offer greater insight into research participants’ ways of seeing, although the researcher remains the go-between, mediating, interpreting and representing. This seminar will discuss how a narrative ecology approach to researching teachers’ professional identities with digital technologies might be used to try to talk back to and challenge deterministic and techno-centric imperatives for digital technologies in education, and to develop a more participatory approach to researching technology supported learning in teacher education.’
