Michele Knobel

Michele Knobel is Professor of Education in the Department of Early Childhood, Elementary and Literacy Education at Montclair State University and an internationally recognized researcher and scholar in the area of literacy education, new literacies and digital technologies (cf., Lankshear & Knobel, 2003; Lankshear & Knobel 2006; Knobel & Lankshear, 2007; Coiro, Knobel, Lankshear & Leu, 2008; Lankshear & Knobel, 2008).

She worked at the Queensland University of Technology from 1995-1998 before moving to Mexico where she continued researching and writing on teacher research and new literacies whilst working at distance for Central Queensland University. During 2001-2002 she was Assistant Professor and Associate Research Specialist in the Department of Education at the University of California, Irvine, and joined Montclair State University in 2003.

Her early work focused on the everyday literacies of adolescents within school and out-of-school settings (Knobel 1998). During the past decade her work has increasingly focused on the nature and conduct of teacher research and, particularly, the emergence and take up of new literacies and their implications for literacy education and teacher education.
