MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
Personal StatementTeacher educator initially in mathematics education, but now also in mentoring, induction, research and ICT. Live in Sydney with my husband and two sons who are both university students. I coordinate a professional development project in ICT.
ICT InterestsUsed a number of communication tools and virtual learning environments in my subjects, to supplement other means of contact with my students. Am currently developing a web page for the professional development project I coordinate in the Faculty of Education. I have a Grad Dip in Computer Studies which is fairly elderly now and focused on programming. I am developing my expertise in use of digital video, electronic portfolios and web portal development.
Recent ProjectsMy major project is the eChange project - a professional development project, sponsored by my faculty in which I support the appropriate use of ICT by faculty members in their teaching and learning. I also have a collaborative project with a colleague at UTS and with Apple Australia on developing pedagogy using student-generated digital video. This is in early stages at present. I am also involved in research in which an online mentoring network is being used to support beginning teachers.
