MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I have worked in the field of education since 1972, firstly as a lecturer in counselling theories and techniques, then as a guidance counsellor and teacher. For ten years I was a school principal of a private school in Dublin, Pembroke School, which provided education at both primary and secondary level. I currently work for the European Schoolnet in Brussels, Belgium. www.eun.org
I have been using ICT for many years. My first computer was an Apple II, and when my children were small, we thought the Sinclair Spectrum 28k was a marvel! I hold a Certificate in Computer Studies from the British Computer Society.e and an MSc in Technology and Learning from Trinity College Dublin.
I have worked on a number of ICT related projects, including research for the Information Society of Ireland report (2000) in the area of special needs education. I carried out a case study report on a government funded cross border project (Dissolving Boundaries) between schools in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. In my current position I work on several projects within the European Schoolnet, VALNET, a validation project, eWatch a case study research project, ENIS (The European Network of Innovative Schools) and as coordinator of the School Managers Centre(SMC).
Since joining European Schoolnet I have worked extensively is all aspects of techology in education and have spent the last 7 years working on the largest community for teachers in Europe using technology in their teaching, the project eTwinning which today ( March 2013) has almost 200,000 members. www.etwinning.net
