MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I have been involved with Learning Technolgies and education for over 10 years and worked in schools and Local Authorities through the duration. I have been influential in the development of e-safety within WMNet and sit currently on the education board of CEOP. I have been responsible for the roll out and deployment of Learning Platforms and SSO in Worcestershire and worked closely with BECTA on the LP learning platform matrix.
I have enabled a team within Worcestershire to also support schools in their use and development of web2.0 applications including e-missions, british museum projects and thinkquest competitions. We have also promoted widely the teachmeet concept to enable schools to network informally and share good practice.
I have also appeared on Teacher's TV looking at the use of Information Literacy with students.
I tweet @web2what and welcome conversations about school structures and change management! yes, really!
