Research Summary

Research and engagement with Computing education

I have engaged with a range of research projects in the field of digital technologies funded by the European Union, Department for Education, Teacher Training Agency, Canon Research Europe, British Telecom and Research Machines.

My current research focus is ‘Towards a curriculum for a digital age’ and social informatics available at:
https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Adrian-Mee/research

My recent research has focused on:
Cognitive frameworks for understanding the nature of the subject 'Computing'
Forces acting to shape the Computing curriculum at school level
Girls perceptions of the subject
The relationship between curriculum aims and pedagogy

This intersects with my ITE work where students develop their critical understanding of the nature of the curriculum. The work encompasses the nature of digital knowledge, digital ethics and the forces in schools shaping Computing pedagogy. I am involved in a range of ventures with the British Computer Society (BSC), Computing at Schools (CAS) and the National College for Computing Education (NCCE).
