I’m Nicole Johnson and my overarching goal is to empower people with a better understanding of digital media and the power it holds as an educational and capacity development tool. Advances in digital technology have profoundly disrupted our world and, fascinated by this phenomenon, I am continually exploring the interrelationships between competency development, community, digital identity, informal learning, marketing, and online networks.

I am currently completing a PhD in Education and ICT (e-learning) and, for my day job, I work from home as a researcher with a couple of different research teams.

I believe strongly in the need for deliberate, focused, in-person interactions in this digital age, and I enjoy spending time outdoors with my four children when I’m not on my laptop geeking out over data sets.
