MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I did a degree in chemistry and then taught science in London schools, starting to use ICT in the early 80s. After lecturing in chemistry and IT at St. Mary's College, I moved to the Institute of Education in 1988 as a lecturer in Science Education - but ended up running the PGCE in IT from 1999-2002.
I then decided it was time to try and put my ideas into practise 'first-hand' and returned to school-teaching as Assistant Head and Technology College manager at Hampstead School in Camden, London.
In August 2010 I relocated to Greece with my (Greek) wife and our 3 year old daughter and am looking forward to developing the use of ICT in learning science at my new school - and spreading the Mirandanet message in Greece!
In the early 80s I started using a BBC for datalogging in science lessons. This was followed by exploring the use of spreadsheets for pupils to write and explore scientific models, and then the use of computer-based models more generally. In an ESRC funded project I used HyperStudio to create (‘on on the fly’) explanations of changes in materials from a ‘grammar of explanations’. I then became more interested in the creation and use of web-based teaching and learning resources - e.g all the course materials for the PGCE I ran were (only) available in this form. In my new role I hope to explore the use of Web 2+ technologies in learning.
