Alexandra Okada

Alexandra has over twenty years’ experience in technology enhanced learning, assessment and teaching professional development for Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). She led the educational research of six European funded projects in two fields ‘Information and Communication Technologies’ and ‘Science with and for Society’. She has also directed three large projects funded by the Brazil government on gender and inclusion; digital literacy and teacher professional development.
Her specialism concerns transformative and emancipatory literacies in the digital age. This includes the six RRI components: open access, ethics, gender equality, public engagement, governance and science education. Currently, she is co-developing a framework about “fun” in education and analysing the open and inclusive “fun learning practices and methods” that emerge from the Rumpus project supported by the RRI methodological approach.
