MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am a full-time Assistant Subject Leader in ICT at a secondary school in South Wales, UK. I am also a Visiting Lecturer at the University of South Wales where I teach a module in IT & Computing to prospective student teachers.
I am currently undertaking part-time doctoral research in the area of microworlds learning approaches. I am interested in the notion of a microworld and how a microworlds approach may make relevant conceptual learning accessible through practical, constructionist approaches in cross curricular applications. I am increasingly interested in programming as a component of the curriculum in Welsh secondary education and the broader relevance of programming activities across the wider Welsh curriculum.
In addition to the above, I have a wider interest in some of the social, economic, political, and legal effects of ICT; particularly in its relation to education. I enjoy discussing the impact of ICT on contemporary culture, whilst using education as a case study. Areas include the notion of perfect memory in an era of digitization, the development of web 2.0 technologies and computational thinking.
