ICT Enhanced Learning and Teaching Consultant
What is your interest in ICT Enhanced Learning and Teaching?
With 40 years' involvement in teaching and curriculum development - working at secondary, tertiary and community levels - I'm happy to say my interest in education has never diminished. New ways of enhancing the all-important teaching and learning project constantly vie for attention, some finding traction and staying around, others fading into the background to be replaced by the next best thing.

In my view the most exciting and liberating notion to take hold since I began my teaching career is the acknowledgement that differing learning styles and circumstances have a huge impact on how a person learns and that the responsibility of those designing and delivering curricula is to ensure that every single learner has a fair and equitable chance of learning success.

That's where ICT enhanced learning and teaching comes into its own. When curricula are designed and managed with skill and care, Web 2.0 tools enable users - across the barriers of learning or cultural disadvantage - to discover ways of learning that are empowering and life changing.
