Amnesty International

MirandaNet Fellowship is not associated with any political grouping, but we support many of the aims of organisations such as Amnesty International and urge members to look at the AUUK site and see if they agree with these aims as well.

Personal Statement

For most of my working life I was a croupier, working in various London casinos. I liked my job but felt I had missed out by not taking A levels and going to university. I didn't enjoy studying until I left school and always felt that I went to school at the wrong time in my life. I embarked on various courses of study whilst working but when the opportunity presented itself for me to go to college and then university I seized it, and it has changed everything. 

ICT Interests

I am an NQT at Gaynes Secondary School in Upminster teaching ICT. I am particularly interested in the way ICT is or could be used in education, particularly in a cross curricular way. Given the appropriate resources I believe ICT is the key to changing the nature in which we teach and learn. 

Recent Projects

I have introduced Think.com to all key stage 3 pupils at Gaynes and will shortly extend it to some students in key stage 4. I am about to launch a school newspaper on Think.com which a group of students will take ownership of. I also run a Think.com club after school which is proving to be very popular. I have found that Think.com has been embraced by some of the most unlikely pupils and that it has given them a new dimension to express themselves and communicate with others in an exciting environment.
