Gavin Duffy

Gavin Duffy’s doctoral thesis examines the lifecycle of educational apps, working with people throughout the chain, including developers, students, school staff, and parents. Gavin’s aim is to outline the different ways educational apps are seen by different actors, showing the meaning-making as an ongoing and contextual process. Gavin hopes that digital children are able to equitably access resources (both hardware and software), without an underlying business model predicated on the extraction and exploitation of data-value from private companies.

Earliest digital memory
Seeing my father use Napster to download Johnny Cash and June Carter’s version of Jackson. Incidentally, it is also my earliest memory of Johnny Cash.
