Teachnology not Technology
During my ICT career as a Hampshire ‘Subject Lead Professional, I have prepared, delivered and consulted on a range of ICT focused teacher training events.
I have presented at the SSAT National Conference and at various SSAT events promoting student Digital Leadership. I have presented at the Open Source Schools Conference and for ALT (Association for Learning Technologists), on a range of ‘teachnology’ topics. Locally I have presented for the Hampshire Advisory and Inspection Service, Eastleigh Consortium and for Hamble College.
In the past, I contributed to the BECTA ICT Tools for Future Teachers Workshop at Brunel University, as a committee for MoodleMoot 2010 and currently act as a committee member for the ALT, advisory of Secondary School issues.
Other areas of interest include whole school strategy for 1-2-1 learning solutions, Moodle and promoting a blended learning environment for staff and students.
With a Sport Science and Physical Education degree from Loughborough University and a Masters Degree in Kinesiology and Sport Psychology from Southern Illinois University I am not your typical ICT advocate. I want to share how technology can be used to engage with young people rather than tell you why.
With over 10 years teaching experience, I am a keen ICT innovator, working with many web 2.0 tools, contributing to global ICT networks and forums. I would welcome the opportunity to share ideas and innovations with you, your department, team or school and learn from you in exchange.
