MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am responsible for the development of educational technologies at Blackburn Central High School (BCHS). I believe that ICT has the potential to not just enhance and extend but to transform learning. BCHS has invested significantly in ICT, ensuring a variety of fixed and mobile devices available to all staff and students. Each teaching space is equipped with an interactive whiteboards, and staff can access a range of audiovisual peripherals including slates, visualisers and apple TVs. We have both thin and thick client suites with Windows PCs and Apple Macs. Students can access netbooks, iPod touches, iPads and laptops, as well as logging onto the school network with their own devices. I believe that our pedagogy must change if we are to transform learning at BCHS, not just using ICT to support current active engagement strategies but using the potential of ICT to produce completely new approaches. I am particularly interested in using technology to develop participation of students in groups, support continuing professional development of all our staff, and am looking to use short term action research projects to develop an evidence base as well as building staff ICT capacity.
