MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
Twitter ID: @bardtoverse
I have been involved in ICT in education since the mid-70s, cutting my teeth on Macs and the ZX81! My main interest is in using ICT as a means of promoting international communication at an early stage, and to help students better realise their potential via techniques such as multi-modal representations.
After ten years as an engineer I joined the IT industry in 1983. Most of my career has been internationally based covering business management, marketing and consultancy. From this experience I have learned that cultural differences are to be cherished and the common fundamentals of life regardless of geography are worthy of recognition. From this I have developed an interest in doing what I can to bring children of diverse nationalities together using ICT as the tool to remove the borders and obstacles inherent in physical travel. I can also see parallels between the tools we use in the commercial world and their applicability in the education process to maximise productivity and realise individual potential; graphical rather than literal assembly of ideas and information for those with written/verbal issues being one example.
I have been involved in various international projects, lectured on the use/evolution of ICT in industry, and written articles about the use of ICT from Early Years up to KS2.
