MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I started life as a mathematician and began teaching mathematics in 1976. I was lucky to start teaching at a school with a teletype link to a mainframe at Hatfield Polytechnic so was immediately involved in programming with kids. Better than that my mentor at Simon Balle school introduced me to teaching programming through problem solving and investigations. Through various routes such as MEP I went on the be Head teacher of two secondary schools where technology was truly pervasive and as head I taught maths and computing. At one stage I was branch secretary for thee NUT in East Kent and represented Kent heads at the DFE or discussions around school funding and specialist school developments.
Between my headships I worked as head of research at RM and through the British Council and CFBT started to build my international experience and that led to me working at Microsoft in Europe, the Middle East and Africa on the partners in Learning programme. Following that I ran a public sector consultancy team for emerging countries at Cisco before taking up the role of head of education strategy at Promethean.
My passion is to shorten the gap between education policy and classroom practice and help all parts of the system be more productive and effective with technology.
