MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I work as an ICT Consultant for Northumberland. From a teaching background, I moved into the consultancy role with the creation of the former Key Stage 3 strategy, now Secondary strategy. This has provided many opportunities to guide and develop ICT teachers through coaching and training. My interest in teaching methods and styles led to involvement in the Pedagogy and Practice for ICT publication from the DfES.
Creativity using ICT has helped to produce exciting lessons and resources for multimedia, control and datalogging; sample case studies of which have been published by NAACE in their focus magazines.
I have a keen interest in thinking skills and interactive technologies, such as interactive whiteboards and voting systems; this has led to the development of a ‘Thinking through ICT’ course, which I am currently working on.
As part of my consultancy, I am now carrying out action research with Newcastle University. A new area of interest is the implementation of the EPICT, European Pedagogical ICT qualification for the professional development of teachers. I am really excited by the work of MirandaNet and look forward to being part of the community.
Two Case Studies published on MirandaNet: the first concerns datalogging, and the second makes an interesting use of Voting Pads (ACTIVote).
