Professional Summary

Interests and Expertise

I am interested in how educators integrate technology to support teaching and learning; especially, with young children and when using emerging technologies. I am also interested in how university students, especially African American women, access and use technology at home and school.

Research currently in progress, The Impact of Infusing Learning Management Systems on Pre-Service & In-Service Teachers, Principal Investigator. Co-Investigators: Nancy Copeland, Professor-Learning Technology & Design, Shawn Quilter, Professor-Educational Psychology. The purpose of this research is to determine whether using LMS to design online lessons while a preservice teacher influences the use of it to support teaching and learning while a student or practicing teacher.

My other research initiatives focus on technology integration to support teaching and learning for P-16 learners. Additionally, I am interested in researching how parent involvement with students as they use technology influences students' academic achievement. Additional past research projects are the integration of GIS to teach US History and Geography (grant funded) and access and use of technology by college students (university funded).
