Personal Statement


Personal Statement

I am Head of ICT at a secondary school in Winchester. I have just begun a PhD looking at the new ICT curriculum - and specifically the use of games authoring. I am interested in what new qualifications (eg iMedia, DiDA etc) offer in terms of game authoring tasks, and how pupils learn about/are taught how to author games. I hope to establish an understanding of what skills/cognitive abilities are exercised in authoring games and what conceptual difficulties pupils encounter in their endeavours. Specifically I am looking at what teaching methods are most appropriate to delivering units in game authoring, and wonder if Web2 technologies (use of social networking, blogs, wikis, VLE's, forums etc) offer a more effective path of learning how to author games than traditional teaching methods, since game authoring may not fit easily into the standard 1 x 1 hour lesson per week offered in ICT at secondary level in the UK.
