An educator with 12 years' teaching experience in the UK (London, England) and internationally. Subjects taught include: Computer Science, ICT, Mathematics and English. My experience is predominantly in Secondary (11 up to 19 year olds) but I have taught children in the Primary years (5 to 10 year olds). I am a department lead, digital lead, teacher trainer, and coach.
I believe in a blended approach. This involves: teacher-lead, student-lead, mixed groupings, paper-based elements (only use tech to save needed time or transform the task!), and the use of physical and digital technologies (keeping the SAMR model in mind.) I always make time for competency development (not just the SUBJECT content!) to help prepare students for the next steps, promote a growth mindset and make the learning experience fun.
