With over 20 years experience in EdTech I have a wealth of experience both in and out of the classroom and am passionate about the use of technology in education. I love enthusing class teachers to help improve their effective use of technology and raise standards of teaching and learning. With extensive experience in training and support on interactive technologies including whiteboards, LED Touch Screens and associated technologies such as pupil response systems and visualisers and hand held devices I am able to develop credibility and motivate the teaching professionals I work with. Even after sales demonstrations I have been thanked by head teachers for inspiring their staff to use technology more effectively.
Acting professionally at all times and have developed excellent interpersonal skills. I maintain a positive attitude even in schools where the training is not welcomed by staff. At times I have had to challenge some teacher’s perceptions, attitudes and expectations, but I managed this through raising their awareness of what is achievable and possible and giving coherent support.
