I am deputy head at Hampshire Collegiate School. My main interests are pedagogy, curriculum, technology and how they can combine to produce great teaching and learning.
I am a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and the proud recipient of a Pearson Teaching Award. I speak regularly at conferences and other events focused on the professional development of teachers. Most notably, I have been a guest speaker at the HMC Annual Conference, The Telegraph Festival of Education, ResearchED, BETT and the Education Show.
I contribute to the TES occasionally and my work has also featured in The Guardian. I am also co-author of a book titled Educate 1-to-1: The secret to successful planning, implementing and sustaining change through mobile learning in schoolsand my new book Using technology in the classroom is being published in November 2017 by Bloomsbury.
Outside school, I am an enthusiastic amateur photographer trying to get to grips with aperture widths, focal lengths and ISO settings. I am a keen but rather average guitar player. I am slightly – but only slightly – more accomplished on the bass. And I really enjoy cookery, from traditional good old English food to anything with chorizo in it. Unlike photography, bass or guitar playing, I’m actually quite good at cooking.
I am also a coffee snob, a tea heathen and most definitely a cat person.
