Her research interests are in the use of information and educational technologies to grow Knowledge Communities, with a special focus on connecting the K-12 learning environment to the teaching and learning practice of the university. Her upcoming book, Knowledge Communities: Bringing the Village into the Classroom, examines how knowledge, which in the nineteenth century looked at classification (according to arguments by McLuhan) now, in the twenty-first century centers upon "connections".
