MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am embarking on an action research project for my PHD. The study will investigate the role of teacher personality on the adoption, use and integration of ICT in the early years. It is a project that is firmly grounded in assisting several teachers develop their ICT skills.
The journey to this point has been varied. On returning to the teaching profession after a decade working in journalism and television production, I was asked by several peers to help them use multimedia in their classrooms. These forays were really unchartered waters with the teachers often not knowing much at all; technically, theoretically or pedagogically. Over a period of four years and many classrooms later, reflecting on what was happening in these classrooms, observing classroom practice, entering into some fascinating dialogues with the teachers and with a little reading under my belt, I decided I needed to know more about what affects teacher use of ICT and the implications of this on professional development programs.
It is with this background that I found MirandaNet.....I am looking forward to the possibilities it affords and, of course, sharing my research with you.
