MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
For 14 years I worked as a Primary school class teacher, working in schools in West Yorkshire, UK. At the end of 2006, I took up a year-long secondment working as a Primary ICT consultant for the Local Education Authority. At the end of the secondment, I was appointed as E-Learning Consultant for the Authority. This role involves me in the promotion and implementation of online learning spaces in 200 schools for children aged 3-18. Throughout my career I have maintained a keen interest in ICT as an important element in all aspects of learning. I have conducted action research on the influence ICT can have on writing. I have been a user of an Interactive Whiteboard for 6 years and have always incorporated the latest technologies into my classroom practice - this involves a range of digital media, cameras, video, visualisers, interactive voting devices etc. I am currently especially interested in collaborative learning and peer tutoring and can testify to the power of ICT to bring students together in collaborative projects that enhance all areas of learning, and particularly speaking, listening and language development. Between 2004 and 2007, I worked as a lecturer of post-graguate teacher trainees in Primary ICT at The University of Leeds.
I am currently working on a project involving the use of Ultra Mobile PCs to support practitioners in early years education both in the gathering of evidence and in the production of e-portfolios.
