Please tell the group about your work in education
I graduated from Moray House in 1994 with a B.Ed (Hons) Degree. I have recently achieved full Chartered Teacher status. I am presently seconded from my post in the Primary sector as an ICT Curriculum Support Officer for my Local Authority.
Briefly, in what ways do you presently use the internet in an education context?
During my secondment, I am responsible for Online learning. I provide CPD courses (both online and offline) to enable teaching staff to access, and use, web 2.0 tools to improve learning and teaching.
What do you wish to get out of participating in edonis over the next 3 years?
I hope to meet other practitioners who are interested in improving learning and teaching through the use of ICT. I also hope to add to my own CPD portfolio as a result of participating.
Finally, if applicable, please give the address of your own website. The link will be listed on the main edonis page
Hello Margaret. How are you getting on in your new role? What kind of CPD sessions are you planning/ running? I have a student planning to look at the use of social networking/ blogging for her final year undergraduate dissertation - but already she is running into difficulties re. local authority permissions/ blocking etc. etc.
