Personal profile


Kelly Johnston is a lecturer with the Department of Educational Studies. She teaches across undergraduate and postgraduate units, specialising in mathematics and technology in early childhood and primary school. Prior to moving to Macquarie University Kelly was engaged in a wide range of roles across the early childhood education sector. This included working as an early childhood teacher and service director in Australia and New Zealand, primary school teaching in the UK and also working in early childhood licensing and accreditation at both a state and federal level.
Kelly’s PhD research focused on the conceptualisations, beliefs and practices of early childhood educators in relation to technology integration within play-based curriculums. It also explored practitioner inquiry as a professional learning strategy to support educators to extend knowledge and integrate technology in socially and culturally relevant ways in their curriculums.
Kelly’s current research projects explore technology and digital citizenship for young children, mathematical language, thinking and learning for infants and toddlers, and young children's learning in museum spaces.
