MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am a Quality Improvement Officer with Inverclyde Council, with the development of ICT in Inverclyde’s schools as part of my remit.
My interests lie in the development of technology as a natural part of teaching and learning experience. It is my aim to encourage all of our primary schools to dismantle their computer labs and disperse the equipment throughout the school. Teachers should integrate technology seamlessly into the curriculum. We cannot do this if all of the equipment is locked up in the one room.
I am also interested in developing Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) in our schools. I am currently facilitating a pilot of BYOT in one of our secondary schools. Wi-Fi is becoming a ubiquitous in society; with the exception of our schools. Pupils, and staff, should not take a step back in time when they enter a school building. We must provide a facility that will allow pupils and staff to make use of their own hand held ICT equipment when they are in school. If we provide users with the ability to attach to the Internet via our Wi-Fi network they will become more creative, using their own familiar technology, thereby taking part in higher quality learning experiences.
