Describe your research in about 200 words.

I study attitudes towards technology use in physical education from a preservice physical education teacher perspective. Additionally, I am interested in technological pedagogical content knowledge and how this knowledge is conveyed in physical education teacher education programs. Lastly, I have a vested interest in augmented reality and how this type of technology affects physical activity patterns among K-12 students.
