Conference Keynote: Dr. Amy Hutchison:
Dr. Hutchison is an associate professor and the Director of the Division of Elementary, Literacy, and Secondary Education at George Mason University. Currently, she is the Primary Investigator or Co-Primary Investigator on three funded projects funded by the National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Education, and the Hong Kong Government. Dr. Hutchison's scholarship centers around three primary areas of inquiry: (1) Understanding how digital technology can be used equitably and to support diverse learners, including students with disabilities; and (2) Understanding how to support the development of computer science skills among elementary grade students and teachers. Focused on these areas of interest, she conducts research across the PK-20 spectrum, across disciplines, in formal and informal learning environments, and with pre-service and practicing teachers using a variety of inquiry tools and methodologies. In her work, she has constructed and examined innovative instructional approaches and practices that are facilitated by the integration of digital technology, which most recently include the use of coding apps and augmented reality for literacy instruction. Through her work, Dr. Hutchison encourages teachers to examine their instructional practice, to understand the ways that digital technology transforms what it means to be literate, to understand the importance of providing equitable access to high-quality instruction with digital technology, and to understand the interconnected nature of reading, writing and digital technology.
