MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am a mathematics teacher in the UK independent sector with departmental responsibility for ICT development and for training my departmental colleagues in ICT use for mathematics teaching.
In June, I will be running a regional conference for mathematics teachers to share their experiences of using ICT in the classroom. I am a member (and may become chair) of the Mathematical Association's subcommittee on spreadsheets, and am working on a book on the use of spreadsheets in the mathematics classroom at GCSE level.
One of my particular interests is in the potential of relatively open software such as Excel and dynamic geometry software such as Cabri-Geometry. The great strength of these packages is that they empower teachers to generate resources that suit their own teaching style. Many more focused resources are frustrating in that they demand that the teacher adapt his or her style to the resource: what they gain in immediate availability with little effort they lose in lack of applicability and flexibility.
