MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
David Gwynne Harries
Educated to higher degree level, I have worked for 30 years in the public sector. The last ten were as Headteacher in a large primary school with a special unit. I have developed the use of ICT on PC and Mac platforms, developing cross curricular ways of extending the curriculum through excellence and enjoyment. I am now developing my work as an education consultant and keen to share learning through the use of ICT. I am also working with international foundation students for a multinational education provider.
The breadth of learning experience is enhanced by the use of ICT systems. Young learners today have technology at their fingertips and can visualize possibilities of only a handful of years ago. Exciting ways of developing speaking and listening in primary schools through podcasting and website creation supported by imaging techniques extends the curriculum in a wonderful way.
I have had the privilege to have worked with children with learning difficulties who have flourished by using these technologies and demonstrated real achievements as opposed to raw score attainment of a testing regime. This has been brave in a climate of accountability against narrow criteria... but successful!
