I’m an ICT Advanced Skills Teacher (AST) and Lead Practitioner for teaching & learning at St. Mary’s Catholic High School in Astley, Greater Manchester.
My main interests are in how we learn, the new KS3 Computing curriculum, social media for professional development, E safety and quality INSET.
Stuff I’ve Done
Presented remotely at the 2nd TeachTweet and #TMCov 2014
Organised TeachMeet East Lancs.
Contributed to Staffrm.io
Started the #CompEdUK hashtag.
Presented at the SSAT 2014 Computing Conference in London. The great thing about social media is that you get instant feedback:
I’ve also delivered the Improving & Outstanding Teacher Programmes, been a Specialist Leader for Education for AfL and collaborative learning, run whole staff INSET at my school and others, team taught in primaries, trained as a coach, facilitator and middle leader. If it’s got an acronym, chances are I’ve had a go.
At the moment, I’m applying for Computing at School ‘Master Teacher’ status and skilling up for the new GCSE and A Level specifications.
