I am a full time languages teacher at Nottingham High School, where I am Head of Modern Foreign Languages. In addition to leading a highly successful Modern Foreign Languages Department, I advise schools, government bodies and other organisations on the use of new and emerging technologies in the classroom to support, enhance and , ultimately, transform teaching and learning.
A career-long interest in the use of technology in education led me to start writing the award-winning Technology and Education blog Box of Tricks, in which I share resources and reflect on my own practice as a teacher. A Masters Degree in ICT and Education has added academic depth to what has always been my passion: innovative teaching and learning supported by the effective use of technology.
My extensive experience of using both contemporary and emerging technologies to support teaching and learning in the classroom – and beyond – has resulted in collaboration with many bodies and organisations such as HMC, ISC, CILT , ALL, ISMLA, the TES, Naace and Teachers TV, among many others.
