I am a freelance Educational Technology consultant and trainer, currently based in Dorset as the Learning Technologist in Residence at Sherborne Girls from Mondays to Wednesdays. I am available for other consultancy and training work on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
I am a Microsoft Global Partner Trainer, as well as an Apple trainer, and am equally proficient in the use of Google apps.
From 2011 to 2020 I was Head of Technology for Learning at Tanglin Trust School in Singapore. In that role I led on devising, planning and implementing the school’s digital strategy, which included moving to a 1 to 1 pen-enabled device programme from Years 7 to 13, founded on the cognitive power of handwriting and of visual thinking. This included moving teachers to Windows 10 pen-enabled devices, untethering them from the whiteboard, along with the schoolwide adoption of Microsoft teams and OneNote class notebooks to achieve seamless communication, planning and workflow. This video encapsulates the programme nicely. I was responsible for training teachers in the effective use of technology, regularly delivering CPD internally and across the region.
Prior to this, I was a French and Spanish teacher from 1989 to 2020, teaching to GCSE, A Level and IB in both languages. I started at Monmouth School for Boys (Wales) and then held Head of Modern Languages posts at Saltus Grammar School (Bermuda), Brentwood School (Essex) and Cayman Prep and High School (Cayman Islands) and 9 years as Director of Languages at Tanglin Trust School (Singapore).
