Personal Statement


Personal Statement

As a Filipino-British international kid, I remember growing up in Hong Kong when MSN messenger, tamagotchis and pagers first arrived on the scene.  I owe my ability to type like a fiend to these addictions (despite tamagotchis being quickly banned in my primary school!), online-chatting away to friends overseas.  Fast forward a few years to the beginning of my teacher training, and I had suddenly acquired another role above normal teacher workloads: I became the office technician and IT specialist.  I remember being boggled by the lack of experience with how to use a video camera, how to transmit image, how to save work into new folders, how to paste a picture on powerpoint. More than that, there was a fear of their use - the resources were all there, but they gathered dust in crammed-full, grey metal filing cabinets.

Now, having left the classroom and my role of Head of Drama, I am writing an MA in Educational Leadership and am an Education Consultant based in London. I’m involved in projects both in the UK and overseas in implementing effective digital learning – and trying to make them actually helpful. It’s an exciting time!  I hope that 21st century teachers and students can find a harmony between technology and education which makes a difference within the context it is placed – but also strengthens the relationship between the pupil and his community.

Putting a computer in front of a child and expecting it to teach him is like putting a book under his pillow, only more expensive.   Joseph Weizenbaum
