MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am the Secondary PGCE Computing with ICT Tutor at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David; I am also the assessment officer for the course and deputy for the director of Secondary ITET.
My main interests are in the curriculum and how this changes together with how the teacher activity manifests in the classroom; digital literacy and pedagogical practice in the construction of knowledge.
I am currently in the later stages of my PhD, which is looking at the teachers perceptions of ICT Capability, and whether the practice in the classroom matches the teachers personal constructs. I have been looking at Activity theory in order to analyse the classroom activity.
Other interests include how digital technologies can impact on learning on a cross curricular level and I am on the Essential skills Wales Digital literacy workshops designing how digital literacy can be assessed within Wales.
On a research basis I have just presented a full paper at the IFIP Conference in Potsdam featuring KEYCIT - Key Competencies in Informatics and ICT.
My paper looked at how Activity Theory can be used to identify contradictions in case studies, focusing on the teachers perceptions of key competencies and their development of those key competencies within the classroom.
