MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I was an early adopter of ICT in learning whilst a primary school teacher in Bedford in the 1990s. Because of this, I found myself made ICT co-ordinator for the 1997 Ofsted visit and the role holder went on sick leave! I was filmed by the Open University teaching mathematics using ICT for their DVD to support their New Opportunities Funding (NOF) ICT training of practising teachers. Shortly afterwards I left class teaching to become a trainer and ICT lecturer with the NOF consortium associated with De Montfort University (DMU). I subsequently became Director. When the NOF project finished, I became ICT co-ordinator for Bedford Faculty of DMU and one was a member of a team that researched the various VLEs on offer before opting for Blackboard. I managed training for and advised academics on introducing blended learning into their practice. When the Bedford Faculty became part of the University of Bedfordshire I designed what is known as the Learning Hub, an ICT suite organised as a café according to Vygotskian precepts. I have written and delivered undergraduate and postgraduate modules on ICT and education, and have published the findings from these experiences. My current interest lies in identifying the philosophical and epistemological underpinnings driving ICT pedagogies.
