Griffith University’s Dr Michelle Neumann has been named as the leader of Australia’s early childhood education and care (ECEC) research field in The Australian’s 2021 research supplement.

 

She joins a cohort of 10 researchers that The Australian has recognised as leaders in their field based on  the number of citations over the past five years given to papers published by researchers affiliated with a given institution in the top 20 journals in that field.

 

During her PhD candidature Dr Neumann worked closely with preschool children, parents, and educators in ECEC services across southeast QLD where she conducted her early literacy programs. 

 

A video about her work has been compiled by the University, outlining her passion for working with young children and supporting them and their educators to develop a solid foundation for reading and writing. 

 

Throughout her research Dr Neumann has focused on the impact that exposure to ipads has on children’s capacity to learn to read and write.
