MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I have worked as an RS teacher since 1996. At first, I couldn't see a way for ICT to enhance learning in my subject area. However, as access to ICT began to improve, I became convinced that there were an increasing number of ways that ICT could transform learning in my subject area and across the curriculum. I became Lead Practitioner for eLearning, and have helped establish a 'Laptops4Learning' scheme at our school that has brought laptops into all subject areas across the KS3 curriculum. We now have an effective Learning Platform used by all subject areas. It is used best when students work collaboratively. I am always looking for the next steps to take. For example, since 2007 I have been involved in projects using Second Life, a virtual 3D world, as a learning environment. My primary interest is learning, and ICT has huge potential to improve learning.
ICT InterestsI teach ICT, but mainly RS. I designed and run the school extranet (www.arnewood.net) and am responsible for overseeing the cross-curricular provision of eLearning. I provide the staff training on Studywiz, our learning platform. I also run an RS website, www.rsrevision.com.
