Biography

Naomi is a Researcher Analyst at the Woolf Fisher Research Centre, a trained secondary teacher and currently undertaking doctoral research at the University of Auckland. Her teaching background is in English and Information Technology, and as an in-school Literacy Co-ordinator. Especially interested in how digital literacies and text literacy mediate inequities for low-socioeconomic communities, her PhD study investigates how children’s 1-to-1 digital practices influence their learning in classrooms and out-of-school settings. This work places particular emphasis on how teachers, parents and Web 2.0 affordances, particularly DLO (Digital Learning Object) creation can support enhanced student achievement and parent involvement. 

Research | Current

Naomi's current research work is in primary and secondary low decile schools and focuses on the development of young people's 21st century skills and achievement in 1:1 digital learning environments. These projects are situated within research design partnerships with the Manaiakalani digital programme and the Te Puawai Northland initiative. Her prior research involvement includes the Starpath project, TLRI Porous Learning, and Ministry of Education Language and Literacy projects.
