I have been integrating digital technologies into classrooms since the last century. I have long seen the positive impact on learning potential that technology can have on students. Used well, technology is a force for massive educational change, but equally, used poorly and the same technology has the potential to have the opposite effect. This is I why I am so passionate to work in class, alongside teachers, so that I can team teach and model effective digital technology pedagogy with them and enable teachers to grow and become passionate about effectively integrating digital technologies into their own practice and classrooms. I am a registered New Zealand Teacher, trained in the UK.

Hertfordhshire Local Education Authority technology adviser
Head of IT and digital technology curriculum design – St Edmund’s School for Girls’

Director of dakinane limited – established 2008
