MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
Currently I work as an Exec Producer for Twofour Knowledge, part of the Twofour Group. Knowledge concentrates specifically on the communications solutions in the world of education, health and the third sector. I have a long and varied history working with ICT, in the Education sector, being one of the first 'Apple' Certified training officers in the South West of England. I embarked on one of the very first funded distance learning courses back in 1985 and was sent a real computer through the post, for me to work on. Home access is not a 'new idea'! After working as a technical author creating software manuals using DTP software, I moved into the world of 'Apple Macs' at first as a training officer and later selling solutions into the education sector. I supplied the education sector for many years and then actually went to work in it. I helped bring about the internet revolution to the South West working at the University of Plymouth on a major Objective 5b funded project. We researched, profiled and then earmarked sites that would best exploit internet facilities in rural settings, particularly areas of disadvantage, across the south west. The project provided information and training, to upskill local populations and to widen access to more work and training opportunities. Working in the TV industry, I have been able to get some great hands on technical experience as well as follow the trends of ICT as it's embedded into education, by teachers and learners, some more willing than others. The UK has matured tremendously over the last few years in the way that schools and colleges harness technology to support teaching and learning, and as an educational multimedia consultant and producer, it's now my job to advise government departments and agencies, the third sector, schools, colleges and LA's, how best to exploit new technologies to communicate, inform and support their key stakeholders.
