Visiting Scholar

Shana is a high school teacher librarian at Columbia River High School in Vancouver, Washington.  Shana visited the Centre for Research in Digital Education from January - March 2019 as a recipient of the Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching Program. The Program was launched in 2009 to provide K-12 teachers with the opportunity to take a leave of absence from regular teaching duties to do practical research abroad.  Shana worked with Professor Judy Robertson to develop lessons for high school students that would help them navigate their use of social media.
