Hello! I am Fiona Scott, a Lecturer in Digital Literacies in the School of Education at The University of Sheffield, UK. I am a Co-Director of the Literacies Research Cluster.
I have been working as a researcher in a range of academic and non-academic settings since 2007. 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; digital texts and devices; play; child and family practices; adult mediation; and social class. I am a confident qualitative and mixed methods researcher.
I have worked with a range of non-academic organisations including The LEGO Foundation, XR Games, CBeebies and Twinkl. This site contains information about my research interests and projects. 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 began my career in non-academic research, as a Research Consultant for Audiences Yorkshire (an Audience Development Agency funded by Arts Council England) and as a Research Associate within a private educational consultancy.
