From OER in Education
Jump to: navigation, search

I did a BSc in Philosophy & Psychology, then trained to teach which I did for a year (alongside an MA in Philosophy of Education), I then did an MPhil in Education, and am moving on to a PhD. I research the relationship between views on 'knowledge', and how individuals and policies deal with information/knowledge (focussing on search engines). This is interesting in the context of OER given high quality resources might be there, but access alone is probably not enough.

I tweet @sjgknight

I curate at Scoop.it on search engines, information literacy and information retrieval in educational contexts.

I blog for Nominet Trust on bits of my research and ICT in society.

And I have a general website (not always up to date) here.
