MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I have been working towards the integration and implementation of ICT in our secondary education education for over twenty years. While my interest lies mainly in how online technologies might be used to develop homogenous group settings for gifted and talented secondary school aged children I recognize its importance for children of all abilities.Having taught Maths and Science to higher ability students for over twenty years in Canada, the US and the UK, I went back to UK (University of Oxford) for my DPhil. My doctoral thesis explored the sense of community in an online environment of a large high ability population, and the roles played by the teacher/facilitator/mentor in helping to create both social and cognitive presence within this community. Presently I am working as a research associate in the department of Education at McGill University. Our research team is exploring the role of Inquiry in learning and teaching.
I am interested in continuing my research with online communities and look forward to engaging with the members of the MirandaNet Community about current issues in ICT and Education.
