MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am interested in how new technologies are influencing the nature of how humans interact; also the way we understand the concept of knowledge and how technologies may change this. In the field of education, we have seen many educationalists herald new technologies as "revolutions" and "transformational". I am unsure about the impact of older technologies but new ICT that helps interactivity does seem to hold much more promise.
I am currently ICT consultant for Liverpool's forty two secondary schools- I support a community of two hundred ICT specialist teachers, and work on current government projects such as ICT in the National strategies, diplomas, functional skills. With colleagues in English and modern foreign languages, I support the teaching community using a variety of technologies for learning platforms, podcasts, animations.
I work closely with the north west local authorities - we have now met regularly through the national strategies consultant network since 2002.
In other times of my career, I have been a head of computing and then ICT for twelve years on the Wirral; I spent ten years as an independent consultant in ICT also OFSTED inspecting most English regions. I am an Electronics graduate and spent my final year writing domestic energy simulations for a Welsh council house in FORTRAN on a DEC 10. I am currently completing my MEd at Manchester University in Educational leadership of ICT - looking at how current projects such as BSF accelerate change.
