My work at the University of Nebraska Lincoln is about creating the conditions for ongoing, wide-ranging, open-ended community dialogue about education, learning, and technology. I focus on the design, integration, and use of technology for: making new forms of expression possible, overcoming barriers to expression, and reducing the violence of and alienation associated with acquiring academic literacies in school settings.

I design education technologies that make new things possible—particularly creative and participatory literacies and language learning practices within multilingual K12 contexts. I lead a design incubator out of which affinity-based, heterarchical teams emerge to design, prototype—and sometimes develop and implement—technologically-mediated environments aimed at creating more generative language and literacies experiences and more complex learning ecologies. This work has necessitated ongoing inquiry at the intersection of societal (meta)narratives, equity, education, learning, technologies, and design.
