Hello! I am Fiona Scott, a Lecturer in Digital Literacies in the School of Education at The University of Sheffield, UK.


I have been working as a researcher in a range of academic and non-academic settings for the past ten years. Since 2011, I have been researching and teaching in an academic context. Prior to 2018, I worked as a Lecturer in Early Childhood at Sheffield Hallam University. My research and teaching interests include: literacies and digital literacies; early childhood; critical developmental psychology; social class and research methods.

I have also worked for, and with, a range of non-academic organisations including Audiences Yorkshire, an independent educational research consultancy, CBeebies and Twinkl. This site contains information about my research interests and projects and includes a blog on my travels, activities and ideas. You can see further information about me, and a complete list of my publications.

My past academic research concerned public perceptions of, and responses to, energy generating technologies and home energy efficiency interventions. Prior to academic life, I had a research career within social research and commercial settings, covering diverse topics including public engagement with arts and culture and evaluations and action research in the learning and skills sector.
