About me 

I have developed and researched the use of digital technologies in learning and teaching since computers first appeared in schools and I taught Computing/ICT and Science in secondary schools and all subjects in primary schools for 13 years. I also worked in Hertfordshire Advisory Service providing advice and professional development on ICT for schools and co-ordinated the Modus Computer Based modelling Project, developing software and curriculum materials.

Since 1998 I have been at KCL where my teaching and research interests are focused on aspects of pedagogy with Computing/ICT, professional development of teachers in the use of digital technologies, use of computer-mediated-communication for Teacher Education and formative assessment. I am currently the Director of the Computer Science/information Technology PGCEs and the MA Computing in Education.
