Khadija Mohamud

Research Student

Khadija is a Leverhulme funded PhD student at the Institute of Educational Technology, Open University. As education is understood to be a factor for sustainable development, her research is concerned with the extent to which an educational technology initiative like the Hello Hubs can help in addressing the challenges children in resource limited contexts face. Her research focuses on investigating the Impact of Hello Hubs in Uganda under the supervision of Professor Peter Twining, Dr. Beck Pitt, Dr. Alison Buckler and Dr. James Stanfield (Newcastle University). Khadija is part of Computers and Learning Research Group (CALRG) organising team for 2017-2018.

Prior to this PhD, Khadija completed an MA in International Development and Education at Newcastle University. Her previous research used focus group interviews and observations to investigate the Impact of Self-Organised Learning Environment (SOLE) and Granny Cloud in a rural village in West Bengal. The data generated from this research illustrated how the SOLE impacted positively on the lives of members of local community. Her PhD research builds upon this research.

Prior to undertaking this academic mission, Khadija worked with under-served communities in the slums of Nairobi, North Eastern Kenya and rural West Bengal through Non-Governmental Organisations.
