Teacher, Musician, and Leader in England, United Kingdom
I've been a Physics teacher since 1990 and a passionate ICT in education advocate for nearly as long.
Originally from Liverpool, I studied Astrophysics at University College London and now live in the Midlands, UK. I am an Apple Distinguished Educator (class of 2013) & member f the EMEIA ADE Advisory Board.
Currently I am Vice Principal: Learning Technologies & Curriculum at The de Ferrers Academy (UK) responsible for the Curriculum and the use of all Learning Technologies, websites and the ICT network. I am also the Apple RTC manager, the driver for the Academy’s highly successful 1:1 iPad programme and keynote speaker on Ed Tech leadership.
I have previously been a Science teacher, Head of Physics, SSAT Lead Practitioner for ICT in Science and Assistant Science College Director, and still teach Physics. In 2005 I received the Salters-Horners A level Physics (SHAP) Teacher of the Year award, and worked on the rewrites of the updated SHAP AS and A2 Physics textbooks.
If i get 5 minutes (which is pretty rare) I play guitar/mandolin/ harmonica, write songs, take photos and get excited about SciFi stuff! I also grew up in Liverpool a few minutes walk from the Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields, but didn't realise they were the ones out of the songs until I was 10!!!
