MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
My name is Christina Stylianou, I come from Cyprus and I am a primary school teacher. My undergraduate degree is in primary school teaching from the University of Cyprus during 2000-2004. In the year 2004-2005 I worked as a substitute teacher and as a part time teacher in primary schools in Cyprus. In 2005-2006 I studied at the University of Nottingham for my my master degree in MA in ICT in Education.
I am currently working as full time teacher in a primary school in Cyprus. I am the coordinator and supervisor of the computer lab and I also teach computers in all six grades. ICT implementation is my main aim in other subject areas too.
I perceive ICT an important and auxiliary 'tool' for promoting new approaches in education for better, easier and more effective teaching and learning. I am interested in implementing ICT in my teaching and potentially aim to incorporate ICT in the educational system of Cyprus, by transferring my knowledge there.
In my undergraduate studies in Nottingham I worked on my dissertation with the topic, “The use of ICT in Cypriot primary schools: Factors governing its implementation by teachers”. My objectives were: (1) explore teachers' use of ICT in their teaching (2) identify factors that influence their teaching behavior regarding ICT (3) provide suggestions and practical guidelines to policy makers and school administrators to devise steps towards computer technology implementation.
