Personal Statement

I was fortunate enough to have begun my secondary mathematics PGCE course under the tutelage of Prof Adrian Oldknow at a time when handheld technology was being trialled as part of the NCET Portable Pilots project, in which I subsequently became a teacher-researcher. This alongside my classroom use of BBC B Computers, Acorn and Nimbus machines led to a lifelong interest in how the nature and substance of mathematical learning would be irrevocably changed through such interactions.  After nine years in the classroom, eventually becoming a Head of Mathematics and later an Advanced Skills Teacher, I moved the University of Chichester to lead the authoring team for the innovative RM MathsAlive project (2000-2003) and develop the MA in Mathematics Education Programme. I have specialised in the research evaluation of educational technologies for mathematics through collaborative approaches involving schools and industry. I have just finished directing the 3-year EU Comenius project \'EdUmatics\', which involves 20 partners in 7 EU countries.

In my current role at the London Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education, I am researching aspects of scaling-up educational innovations alongside Richard Noss and Celia Hoyles in a US/UK collaborative project \'Cornerstone Maths.
