I’m a digital policy, innovation and edtech specialist.
Currently I'm the digital policy specialist for UNICEF, based in New York in the Office of Global Insight and Policy. I work at the intersection of children and their digital lives. Key issues I lead on include AI for Children, digital literacy and digital misinformation / disinformation and children.
Previously I was a Senior Project Officer at UNESCO, Paris, managing a partnership with Pearson to examine and highlight how inclusive digital solutions can help people with low skills and low literacy use technology in a way that supports skills development and, ultimately, improves livelihoods.
Before that I was Head of Mobile at Pearson South Africa’ Innovation Lab, established the mobile learning programme at UNESCO, and was Mobile Impact Evangelist for the mLab Southern Africa, an infoDev funded initiative to incubate mobile apps and content services development in the region.
For three years I held a prestigious Shuttleworth Foundation fellowship for 21st century learning and before that was a fellow of the Reuters Digital Vision Program at Stanford University.
