    My research interests are focussed on dimensions of the early childhood curriculum, including theories and philosophies of learning and development, play based learning, teacher thinking and digital technologies. My current research is examining different approaches to play-based learning in early childhood settings and the role and relationship between consumption, digital technologies and children's play. Current research students I am working with are examining the role and use of play in early childhood curriculum, the use of sociocultural theory in early childhood education, children's play-based activities with digital technologies and the role of digital technologies in the early childhood curriculum.

    Vince Geiger is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at ACU. Vince taught mathematics and held school leadership positions before joining ACU in 2005. His research interests lie in the teaching and learning of mathematics and its applications, with a particular focus on the use of digital tools as enablers of mathematical understanding. The approach he takes to research is guided my socio-cultural principles of learning in exploring how both individuals and collectives of learners acquire mathematical ideas and learn to apply them.
    Vincea??s research program has attracted in excess of $1 million in external funding including an ARC Discovery award (2012-2014) and more recently an ARC DECRA (2015-2017). In addition, he is leader of the ACU team within a DEEWR OLT LELT project (Opening real science: Authentic mathematics and science learning for Australia, 2013-2016). Vince is a recipient of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasiaa??s Practical Implications Award for a research paper with the potential for direct application in school classrooms. He is the author of 81refereed publications that address the interests of both research and professional audiences and is currently Associate Editor of the Mathematics Education Research Journal. Vince supervises higher degree research students in science and mathematics education.
    Vince has always maintained a close link with the mathematics teaching profession and has held the positions of President of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers and Chair of the National Education Forum. He was a member of the Queensland Studies Authoritya??s (QSA) Subject Advisory Committee and State Assessment Panel (1996-2005) and a member of the QSAa??s Learning Area Reference Committee (Mathematics) (2009-2014).
