Kindergartners in Fiji and impact of technology studied by Brandman professor
Dr. Jeffrey Lee, a professor in the School of Education, presented his research on patterns of indigenous learning, focusing on kindergartners in Mana, Fiji, at the recent Comparative International Society Conference in Vancouver, Canada. Lee and coauthor Paul Sparks from Pepperdine University used an ethnographic approach to examine patterns of learning using interviews, observations and an examination of related artifacts. Their focus is on the introduction of iPads to a kindergarten class. The study, Patterns of Indigenous Learning: An Ethnographic Study on How Kindergartners Learn in Mana, Fiji, can be found online.
Lee teaches and develops courses for Brandman’s Doctorate of Education (Ed.D.) program. He continues to study groups of people in Nepal and Fiji to understand the impact of technology on education and indigenous people.
