Personal Statement


Personal Statement

I am Head of Emerging Technologies at Education Scotland. I was assistant headteacher at Tideway, a secondary school of 650 students on the south coast of England, near the city of Brighton. Tideway was an early adopter of learning platform/VLE technologies (a pilot programme using think.com was set up in 2003, with a commercial product - Fronter - being purchased in 2004). The results of this work into the use of VLEs in the classroom can be found at www.learningplatforms.co.uk. I am particularly interested in the ways in which this technology has the potential to 'change' pedagogy and school structures. I completed an MEd in Technology Enhanced Learning at Stirling University in 2005 and an EDd in Professional Educational Studies at Sussex University in 2006. The focus for my research was the use of the collaborative tools on a VLE - message forums, chat areas - by secondary age students and the ways in which these enhance student achievement.
