MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
Originally from the UK I've now moved to Oslo Norway where I'm now working in the corporate world! I work in the newly established Processes & IT Training Department of Norwegian Oil & Engineering Company Aibel AS where I work with developing and organising training, both e-learning and classroom for employees, the majority of whom are engineers.
My previous job in the UK was as Educational Development Manager in head office at World Ort, an Educational NGO with affiliated schools, institutions and development projects in over 60 countries worldwide.
Previously I spent 5 years as a Secondary ICT and Computing Teacher working in a large Secondary School in Hertfordshire. In this job I also took on the role of e-learning coordinator where I implemented our school VLE from scratch and also an implementation of Google Documents. I also ran regular training sessions for staff and PGCE students on a variety of topics. I completed my MA in ICT and Education at Leeds University where I researched "What Gets Kids on a VLE and What Difference Does Age Make?"
Aside from my formal work I also teach occasional classes in synagogues and schools and having grown up in a fantastic peer led youth movement I have a great interest in informal education and education outside the classroom.
I am interested in many aspects of ICT in education and Computing in Schools. I am a big fan of networking with colleagues both online via twitter and via unconferences such as MirandaMod and Teachmeet.
