MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
With a degree in languages, I began my career as a Primary school teacher; that career has since taken several turns and sometimes surprising directions. My interest in ICT and Education began when my children were young, and I was persuaded by a friend to enrol on a local programming course. I soon realised that I would never become an enthusiastic programmer but I was instantly motivated to explore how ICT could be applied to develop, enhance and extend children's learning. Since then, my key role working for both Local Authority and other organisations has been to support schools in their use of ICT. My focus has been on improving teaching and learning, and I have been involved in a wide range of national ICT initiatives and professional development programmes. I confess that I get excited by new technologies! However, I am specifically interested in evaluating the impact ICT can have on children's learning, in exploring different models of teachers' professional development and in the application of ICT to develop creativity and to communicate. I would like to see more action-based research in schools, more whole-school developments, and to persuade teachers to have the confidence to share their best practice using ICT.
