MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am an ICT Teacher and Assistant Headteacher at an inner London Secondary school. I have been an ICT co-ordinator and Head of ICT in previous schools. Prior to working in education I worked as a programmer and hardware engineer in various companies in the multimedia, networking and music industry sectors. My educational background is Engineering (undergraduate level) and Music Technology (Masters).
As a very young man I was on the receiving end of Secondary ICT Education in the 1980's, having been in the first cohort to take O Level Computing at my school. I was successful in having three microcomputer games published between the ages of 15 and 17.
My interest in joining MirandaNet is to explore areas for research, and to ultimately establish my own area for some fruitful practice based research. The areas I am particularly interested in are:
- Effective teaching methodologies for ICT as a subject distinct from "traditional" subjects
- Game based learning
- Mobile technologies
- Programming as part of the ICT Curriculum
- Engaging non-musicians with Music Technology
- Understanding learning at the cognitive level
I am optimistic about and energised by the potential for the positive societal impact of ICT.
