Teaching since 2005, Michael has developed his career as a Computing teacher with a unique mix of industry experience, lecturing in FE & HE and now leading a Computing department in a Northern Irish Grammar school.
Having developed his knowledge and skill base, Michael is keen to share what he has learned to help others develop in their own use of technology in the classroom.
The financial setting in education is making it harder than ever to make a significant difference in education. Investment in technology hardware needs to be 100% certain of making a difference to learning outcomes. That’s where the EdTechist can truly offer the impact schools need. Proven digital strategy will enable growth, competence and confidence in staff to make a difference with technology in the classroom.
With an approach that is teacher-focused, I understand the need for encouraging, embedding and developing teacher confidence in their abilities in order to ge the best from them. At the same time, development of school leadership ensures school leaders’ focus is on ensuring the appropriate change happens which delivers on value and impact.
