Lisa Kilgariff

Lisa’s PhD research explores the use of digital tools and creativity in literacy learning for students ages 5-13. Working with children as co-researchers, she hopes that her work will provide insight into how children use digital tools to share meaning. Lisa brings her experience as a middle years classroom teacher and past research into program design, student-led learning and student agency to her current work. She hopes that the future holds safe digital spaces for children to learn and play without limits, and that accessibility increases so all children have equal access to the fantastic resources our digital future will provide.
