MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am a French teacher by training, now in my second middle leadership post at a comprehensive secondary school in Hertfordshire. I have been interested in ICT in education since my PGCE at Oxford, where I wrote my dissertation on teachers' adoption of new technologies. I am a Fast Track in the final stage of the programme and am looking for a leadership role next year.
I am particularly interested in developing teacher use of interactive technologies inside and beyond the classroom, especially with regard to improving skills for independent learning, critical thinking in students and staff CPD. I think that ICT can play a very important role in motivating and involving students in multi-dimensional learning experiences, and as teachers it is our responsibility to develop learning environments appropriate for digital natives in the 21st century.
I have been a Twitter user for the past year or so, and have used this fantastic medium to develop a strong PLN. Thanks to my international network (several of whom are MirandaNetters) I have moved my practice and awareness of progress in ICT forwards. I now feel the next step is to develop my professional network further through MirandaNet and learn more about where ICT in education is going. I also hope I will have something to offer the community by way of experience and strategy. I run my own blog and have had positive feedback on pieces I have written about digital literacy, motivation and the future of MFL. I hope to publish work more formally in the future.
