MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I have been creating digital resources, mostly for primary schools, since 1980 and I've watched a lot of things come and go. Right now I think ICT in education is a mess - but then so is education generally - with a huge number of different interests pulling it in a lot of different directions. I think we suffer from a 'because we can' attitude that can force ill-researched ideas based on whatever the latest internet buzz is to be pushed onto teachers whose heads are still spinning from the last Big Idea. I think we need to stop letting the technology define the pedagogy and look for ways ICT can support learning, rather than seeing education as a huge Lego set for ICT to try its ideas out with.
Currently working on a primary phase MFL software project, trying to understand SCORM and get stuff working on VLEs, working with a group of special needs FE students and doing OU post-grad course on Accessible online learning: supporting disabled students (H810).
Not done much writing lately - but there's a sellection of my older stuff here: www.marshal.co.uk/articles/
