About Me
I have been Head of ICT at the Royal Masonic School for over 12 years, where I teach girls between the ages of 7 and 18. In this time I have continued to promote the use of cutting edge ICT tools within the curriculum. Having been weaned on the Acorn series of computers, I have an open mind to the use of platforms and software within education, rather than sticking to the use of more traditional software packages. Open Source packages and Web 2.0 tools are used throughout the school.

I have lectured at conferences, both online and in person, on the subject of VLEs. My presentations at the first two UK Moodlemoots were very well received and resulted in me becoming firmly established as one of the leading UK evangelists for this Open Source package. I was part of the HUGTOB team of 5 teachers, who thanks to generous support from the Moodle community, had an independent stand for Moodle users at the BETT show 2006. My prize-winning poster presentation at the CAL 2005 conference illustrated the use of Wikis, Blogs and Forums in an educational context.

As a teacher member of NAACE and a Mirandanet Fellow, I see myself as an ambassador for educational ICT and has been involved in a range of academic and educational projects. Greatly in demand as a presenter, I have been involved in projects for QCA, BECTA and the European Union and provides consultancy on the use of Moodle and the use of other Web 2.0 tools within Education.

I have written articles for the forthcoming 'Coming of Age' book that looks at the use of Web 2.0 applications within education.

HI! I have a question for you. I'm writing my thesis and I post a survey in Classroom 2.0. I observed that, among members of classroom, ther are few people that come from to UK. this matter is curious! I ask you if in UK exists another community of educators as Classroom 2.0 and, for this, a lot of english use others tools. thanks.

Hi Drew,
You are evangelizing the right stuff. Do you have any examples that you could point me to of how you are using blogs, wikis and forums in the classroom environment?

I got your message as I was sending mine. Most of my recent ancestry hales from Wales, but an Irish girl found my heart. At least we can agree on being Celtic!

Have a great week!
Michael
