Personal Statement

I have been around in the ICT field for quite a few years. From a science teacher with an early interest in data-logging I joined the Microelectronics Education Programme, a fore-runner of what is now Becta. I then worked as an ICT Adviser for a London Borough for a while before becoming an independent ICT adviser.

ICT Interests

I am very interested in how pupils learn with ICT. There seems to be so much more to learn about the relationshiop between ICT use and the development and application of higher order skills. I am very keen too to see how the e-learning agenda maps out.

Recent Projects

I have worked with NAACE on a number of publications including 'Learning in the 21st Century' and the revision of 'Implementing ICT'. More recently I have worked with MirandaNet on the Web Wise Wapping project (www.web-wise-wapping.net).

Case Histories

I drafted a case study following a visit to a school in Nashville where every pupil had a laptop computer. When we get to this point in the UK we will think very differently about ICT, I would predict. The view of teachers, and written testimonials from pupils, suggested that this approach was having an impact on: - the effectiveness of learning for all groups of learners

The following is a list of some of the features of their approach:

Technical issues

Practical issues

Teacher development
