MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am a qualified secondary school science/biology teacher who taught in Zimbabwean high schools for 8 years before becoming a University Lecturer. I have a lot of interest in promoting effective teaching and learning which is based on the needs of the learner as an individual, that is, the use of learner centred approaches. Right now I am a third year PhD student at the University of Sheffield and my research interests are in ICT. My research project is focused on the use of new technologies in the teaching and learning of science at secondary school level.In particular, I am looking at the use of Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) and Electronic Voting Systems (EVS) and the study is being conducted in UK schools. My study is based on some psychological aspects of learning that are not dominated by cultural considerations and it is against this background that I think I will be able to use the findings of the study beyond the UK boarders.In particular, the experience I am gaining here will be of great value when I return to my country as I intend to continue working as an educator/policy maker.
I am interested to join this fellowship to be able to interact with people who share a similar vision regarding the use of ICT in teaching and learning. I intend to use this platform to share my own experiences and also to learn from others about the developments that are taking place in this field.I also want to take advantage of the possibility to publish my research findings with a view to interact more widely with other researchers and experts in the field of ICT and its utility in education.
