MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
Twitter ID: @daibarnes
I have worked in education technology and teaching since 1996. My enthusiasm is focussed on getting teachers across the school comfortable and confident with their ICT in the classroom to enable students to exploit technology as a vehicle for their learning. I enjoy showing teachers how to use their tools quickly in a day-to-day, I'm a busy teacher way. When they start to see how practical and useful it is to engage students through primary sourced material, and being bold, they get excited and I try and run with it. It's not about teaching skills, they are a side-effect; I do my best to show them how to use it quickly and effectively. I am always interested in how to do it for everybody and not just one class or teacher.
Currently I run a moodle site, use promethean IWBs with ActiVote and ActivExpression, Digital Blue vid cams, digital cameras, and as much open source software as I can fit into the curriculum (although the school is microsoft in general). Recently I've been developing social networking and blogs when I can find appropriate uses.
