Professional biography

Dr. Alexandra Okada is a research fellow at the Centre for Research in Computing, Human-Centred Computing - New Media Systems. She is also visiting honorary lecturer at the Open University in Brazil and Portugal.  Previously, she worked as an educational technology consultant to the Association for Science Education UK and to the Secretary of Continuing Education, Literacy, Diversity and Inclusion of Brazilian Government; as well as a computer scientist at Johnson & Johnson and IBM Brazil.  She holds a BSc Computer Science (Hons); MA (Education: Curriculum); MBA (Knowledge Management and Communication ); PhD Educational Technology.

Research interests

Alexandra’s research interests and expertise lie at intersections between Technology, Education and Science. Her specialism concerns emancipatory education for Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in the digital age. Her work mobilises sociocultural theory, critical pedagogy and mixed methods to examine how educators as reflective practitioners equip learners with skills for responsible innovation and entrepreneurship. This includes also how learners use technology to reflect in and on action collaboratively for developing knowledge, skills and attitudes based on real-world experiences and grand challenges.  With this purpose, her research projects are explicitly designed to help "learning communities" address how best to foster digital scientific skills facing the pace of technology to think and act critically. Her academic work centres on building new frameworks, methods and tools for socially constructing and extending knowledge-in-context working scientifically. 

Impact and engagement

Alexandra’s major contribution to theoretical knowledge lies in the new field of “Knowledge Cartography”, a unified body of conceptual and methodological work, developed over 15 years, with empirical and analytic studies designed and undertaken in collaboration with international experts and scholars. She developed the novel mapping technique “evidence-based dialogue mapping” to help learners develop scientific argumentation using technology. This technique is being used by secondary pupils, undergraduates and PhD students to enquire, analyse, solve and communicate scientific reasoning. It is being applied in a variety of areas, such as inquiry design, citizen science, collaborative learning, community-based participatory research and policy analysis. 

Alexandra’s intellectual leadership and research led to two influential European-funded proposals on inquiry-based science education as PI. 

In weSPOT(2012-2014), she conceptualised the term ‘inquiry workflow’, which she linked to the working environment with social personal open technologies, which includes mobile devices and learning analytics to foster pervasive learning. This model enabled diverse communities to set up projects supported by mobile interfaces and mapping tools in eight countries. Alexandra’s exploratory investigations in the UK, Brazil and Portugal included more than 250 students who contributed to tests, implementation and evaluation. Her distinctive approach co-inquiry with mobile devices brought together secondary and PhD students, researchers, educators and parents in science projects outside classrooms.

In ENGAGE(2014-2017), she co-authored a novel framework of inquiry skills or RRI.This work is explicitly designed to help young people discuss potential risks and benefits of scientific innovations and consider needs and concerns of society. As a direct consequence of this work, there has been a significant rethinking of curriculum design and assessment in Europe. The curriculum materials and online courses based on the inquiry skills for RRI constitute the core model of the ENGAGE, which reached more than 12,000 teachers in 80 countries and recently has been linked to AQA National Exam Board in the UK. 

External collaborations

Her unified research programme  provides evidence of novel approaches for applying new platforms co-developed by the Knowledge Media Institute (Compendium, FlashMeeting, OpenLearn Works, weSPOT, LiteMap, ENGAGE edX) to foster inquiry skills for RRI in primary, secondary and higher education.  

Some examples of her contributions to Science, Education and Technology fields funded by international organisations such as Hewlett Foundation, Telefonica Foundation and  European Commission comprise:

2006 - 2008: Knowledge media tools for inquiry-based learning 

  • Evidence-based dialogue mapping approach for secondary school students developing scientific reasoning on socioscientific issues
  • Knowledge media tools applied to language learning with open educational resources  
  • Mixed-method analysis for proctored online exam with FlashMeeting web conferencing tool at scale  
  • Policy analysis of controversial debates using mixed methods with Compendium mapping tool

2010 - 2017: Knowledge media tools for Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI)

  • Engaging Science: Innovative teaching for responsible citizenship with OER and MOOC
  • Community-based participatory research mapping with LiteMap argumentative tool for bottom-up development of RRI policy report  

Alexandra has designed and taught various courses across a wide-range of disciplines exploring educational technology for undergraduates and postgraduates, knowledge media technologies for online learning, methods and tools for reusing open educational resources, software applications for qualitative research.  She has drawn on her extensive prior experience of working as a STEM teacher in secondary schools in Brazil and in summer courses with school pupils in the UK. This has enabled her to investigate emerging digital practices.

Currently, she is a visiting lecturer at the Open University in Brazil and Portugal teaching “collaborative learning and cooperative inquiry in the digital age” for postgraduates. She is also the coordinator, editor and tutor of the European MOOC on engaging science for responsible research and innovation.
