MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I began my professional life as a teacher of mathematics and computing. I became involved in writing materials to support teachers in the use of ICT within subject teaching: for example, the ‘NOF’ teacher education initiative, a series of DfEE-funded professional development modules focusing on the use of ICT in the teaching and learning of primary mathematics and a resource for teachers of mathematics at KS3.
I completed a PhD at the University of Bristol. My research took place authentic mathematics classrooms in which computers were used by the pupils to complete mathematical tasks, and the research focused on the meditational role of the teacher, the task and the computer.
I work at the University of Bristol as a researcher and have been involved in a number of research projects concerning the use of ICT in teaching and learning, such as:
- The InterActive Education project (www.interactiveeducation.ac.uk)
- Using handheld computing devices in secondary schools
- Using online discussion boards in science classrooms.
I work on the EU-funded Network of Excellence, STELLAR (www.stellarnet.eu) which aims to address the fragmentation within the Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) research community and to contribute to developing the research agenda in this area.
