Phil recently completed his PhD on Learning Collaborative Writing Using Digital Tabletops. His interests include Educational Technology (particularly collaborative learning and authoring), Visualisation/Computer Graphics (Big Data -in particular empowering 'ordinary' people to scrutinise data - as well as graphical applications such as games etc.) and IOT (particularly in the classroom). He is also a professor... of capoeira.
Phil is working on the Linguacusine project - a follow-on from the Language Learning Kitchen projects. The aim is for participants to engage in authoring (and trying) technology-enabled cooking tasks in a second language, leading to learning about language, culture, cooking and technology. The project builds on Phil's background in educational technology, and his interest in the use of authoring as a way of promoting collaborative learning and digital inclusion.
