Director for Think.com (UK)
Part of Oracle Corporation’s Global Learning Initiative
For the past two years Caroline has been Director for Oracle’s Think.com initiative in the UK.
Oracle has extensive knowledge of the online education arena having developed and implemented an educational technology solution that allows schoolchildren and teachers to create, protected online learning communities, which enhance the classroom learning experience using the internet. Caroline leads a team of educators, teachers, and IT professionals whose jobs are to help teachers and students make the most out of new technology and new teaching methods.
Caroline pioneered Think.com’s introduction to the education market place and has seen its adoption across all aspects of education, learning and research. From its inception, with just a few school communities piloting and testing the system for classroom usefulness, and through its early adopters’ phase – taking the user community to 10,000 students and teachers. It is now in its third year and full production version. The rollout plans include: several whole LEAs adopting it for all their schools; 25,000 head teachers using it as the virtual college part of the National College for School Leadership; and as the underlying technology for Gridclub, the DfES-sponsored club for all 7-11 year olds in England.
Caroline’s career spans over 20 years in Information Technology starting in software development, through project/programme direction, sales and marketing, and commercial management. She has had the responsibility of delivering the depth and breadth of IT services for a number of companies, including Cap Gemini Ernst & Young and AT&T.
