I'm head of Alton Convent School's prep department. The prep department is a co-educational independent Catholic day school for children from 3-11 in Hampshire, England. Professional interests include knowledge management in education, use of open source software and principles in schools, provision for the gifted and talented and independent learning. I'm a member of the British Computer Society's Education and Training Expert Panel, and its e-learning working party. I am also a Mirandanet fellow and have a watching brief on primary matters for the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications Schools and Further Education committee. In my former post as deputy head of St Ives School, Haslemere, I pioneered the use of Moodle and Elgg in primary education. My work on implementing Moodle was documented as the dissertation for Leicester University's MBA in Educational Management, and won the 2006 Becta ICT in Practice Award for primary teaching. Other interests include classical music, creative cookery and photography: most of my digital photos are on Flickr, many of which are geotagged.
