Personal Statement

I have been teaching Environmental Science at a 6thForm College in Malta since 1996. In my initial years of teaching, I have used email as an alternative form of communication with my students (mainly to provide them with project work/ reminders of assessments etc). Internet use and its role in education, has been heavily promoted by the government of Malta (the southernmost EU Island–State) over the past decade. Latest local statistics reveal that 75 per cent of households had access to the Internet in 2011, with 94.5 per cent of 16-24 year olds being online.

In 2009, the college rolled in the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and all registered students and academic staff were assigned a personal space on the college VLE. Its use is non-compulsory.I have used the VLE since 2011.

ICT Interests

I am currently reading for a Master’s degree by Distance Learning with the University of Leicester.  For one of the modules, I investigated the use of the VLE at my college. My tutor Prof Trevor Kerry – (a fellow of Mirandanet) – suggested I publish my findings on Mirandanet. I am very keen on encouraging the use of ICT in education – especially in these times when the internet has become part and parcel of daily life. However guidance for its proper use both for teachers and students, is crucial to exploit its maximum benefit.
