Personal Statement

My name is Nik Peachey. I work as a freelance learning technology consultant, trainer, content designer. My specialist area is technologies to support language development. I have previously worked for the British Council on their websites for teachers and managed the BBC | British Council's Teaching English website, growing its user base from 25,000 visitors a month to 220,000 visitors.

At present I am designing Business English language courses to run in Second Life. I'm also involved in podcast and interactive whiteboard training.

ICT Interests

I'm particularly interested in developing learning within 3D virtual environments and gaming environments.
