My research re-imagines the possibilities of public education by creating and studying digitally mediated, intergenerational learning opportunities. I center collaboration and reciprocity with children, parents, retirees, and educators in schools and community-serving organizations. I strive for these studies to contribute new theoretical perspectives on learning with technology that foreground race, class, culture, gender, and place. Practically, my research creates new openings, social transformations within our local communities. My research, teaching, and service reflect these commitments and have made contributions to the field of learning sciences, and education research more broadly.
