MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
It all started with 'Fun with Texts' and 'Granville' in the mid 1980s.... During the intervening 23 years I've had the joy of becoming a Mac enthusiast in the 80s, and being in the core team setting up a new secondary school in the 90s with ICT at the heart of the curriculum.
The noughties brought a spell in LA inspection leading up on ICT School Improvement, which led to headship and the joyful Ingenium project (DfES pilot for Building Schools for the Future) (http://www.greycourt.richmond.sch.uk/news/ingenium/launch/IngeniumLaunch/index.html.
My passion for young people doing interesting things, technologies and cool learning spaces took me out of school and into Steljes Ltd, where we pioneer new technologies. Now I'm immersed in BSF and as determined as ever to work out how we can enhance and learning with ICT. I am very lucky to work in an environment where we can influence the sorts of technologies learners and teachers can use.
I'm most interested in interactive technologies - mobile learning, fabulous use of interactive whiteboards, even interactive walls...... The idea of bringing the environment to life is very compelling, and linking up and sharing in-school and out-of-school work is the future..... (maybe?)
Workwise we're involved in fifteen of the seventeen Wave 1 BSF projects, and also a number of Pathfinders. I'm also working on putting together propositions for FE and primary learning spaces. We are just lanching the Smartwall and the Smart table, both of which are very cool.
This links to a pamphlet I did for the British Council for School Environments, to help share some of the ideas that MirandaNet fellows will recognise, but which may be less familiar to many of those designing and building our new schools. http://www.bcse.uk.net/menu.asp?id=295&pid=4
