My main responsibilities are to embed TIGed in the UK and to support teachers across Europe in engaging their own classes and schools with the innovative programs we have to offer :-) Currently, i am coordinating a collaboration project entitled “DeforestACTION.” This project is being developed by six pathfinder schools throughout Asia Pacific, with facilitation from Microsoft, TakingITGlobal and The Centre for Global Education. It’s an exciting project and i cannot wait to see this evolve!!
A bit about me:
I am a teacher by nature and i am currently working part-time at Shireland Collegiate Academy (UK). Teaching is an amazing profession to be a part of and i am constantly exploring new ways to make learning fun and innovative for students. TIGed is the exact platform i have been searching for that transforms learning beyond the classroom walls to develop effective global leaders.
I have been very fortunate to have co-odrinated the Young Voices project at my school which won the Micosoft’s UK and European Innovative Teachers Award 2009. The project then went on to achieve first place at the Worldwide Innovative Education Forum Award (Brazil) in 2009 for the category ‘Community.’ This was a huge honor and i am very proud of all the students that have made Young Voices a huge success.
In my spare time i love to travel. If i have the opportunity to explore somewhere new i’m there!! I also love going for long walks, going to the cinema/ theatre and yes at times i enjoy curling up to a good old fashioned book :-)
