As an educator I believe it is essential that we all strive to be better. That is true of the students I teach, the staff I lead, and most importantly myself! To achieve this it is essential that people take ownership of their work, and are empowered to take decisions themselves, whilst knowing support is always available.
I've been fortunate to work with teachers and educators across the world through speaking at conferences, designing and delivering INSET for schools, MEI, Texas Instruments and the IBO. I've written for lots of journals and magazines including Mathematics Teaching, Mathematics in Schools, SecEd, Professional Development Today, ICT for Education, Teaching Times and have been interviewed for articles in the Guardian. I've also written revision guides for the IB Mathematics course, published by Texas Instruments and Oxford Study Centre (OSC) as well as contributing a chapter to the Continuum Press book 'Mathematics Education with Digital Technology'.
I believe that technology has the potential to radically impact upon the way we do teaching and learning in schools. The exploration of this potential whether through the use of Computer Algebra Systems, tablets, laptops, mobile devices, VLEs, or cloud technologies has formed a constant part of my working life.
I'm always on the lookout for new areas and projects - If you are working on something you think might be of interest then get in touch!
