Monica Bulger

Monica Bulger is an educational researcher contributing policy research to multi-national groups such as UNICEF and the European Commission. Through her research, she quantifies concepts that are challenging to measure, such as digital literacy, engaged learning, and online harms. She explores these topics through classroom observation, data mining, surveys, interviews, and literature reviews. She is currently a Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, Harvard University and a Research Associate at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford. She earned her Ph.D. in Education with an emphasis in Cognitive Science from the University of California, Santa Barbara and received fellowships from the National Science Foundation, the Web Science Trust, Transliteracies Project, and National Writing Project. Her teaching background in the often unpopular topic of writing informs much of her work on student engagement and learning. Her blogs for DMLcentral will explore the contexts in which technologies are used for learning and how lessons from DML research can be applied locally, in classrooms and informal learning environments.
