Specialization

Dr. D.'s current research intersects the fields of communication, education and technology with a particular emphasis on media literacy education. More specifically, she is interested in how media technologies can support communicative and communal experiences among teachers and students and ultimately lead to more democratic approaches to schooling and education in the United States. She is currently exploring (through research and praxis) online learning (PLCs) and the intersection of health and media literacy. She is the author of "Rethinking Technology in Schools" (Peter Lang Publishing, 2009) and is currently working on a second book, "Healthy Teens, Healthy Schools: How Media Literacy will Save Education in the United States."
