I am a Professor of ICT and Director of the Digital
Media Department at the
Digital Media Center Srl (Italy). I have worked in
Education and ICT for over 20 years now but I am still as passionate about best
use of ICT in education as I was when I started. I have worked in both public
and private sectors advising schools on best use of their ICT to fill its full
potential for teaching and learning. My research and development work includes design thinking, technology
enhanced learning, mobile technology and learning space design.
l am a strong believer that the world of teaching and learning is changing rapidly within schools, with
new ways of learning and new spaces for students to learn. The role of teaching
is also changing, with developments in e-learning, tracking pupil progress,
virtual learning environments and personalised learning in order to enhance
progress, achievement and participation for students in a 'anytime, anywhere'
access environment. As technology is ever changing at a rapid rate, I have been
investing time in looking at new products and devices that schools are using,
or thinking about using, so tablets within schools and cloud based products
that schools can adopt and use to help progress the school's vision of their
ICT in education.
Never stop learning because life never stops teaching.
