About Me

Not much to say really!  Born and brewed in Leeds just like Tetley’s beer!  Moved to the Yorkshire Dales so I could spend more time exploring the underworld of life – caves, cavers and the like! Met Nigel who is now my husband, alter ego, other half etc and we now have two little clones called Lachlan and Aonghas.  I speak French fluently, my Spanish is improving rapidly as I teach it, and I have enough German to get by. I enjoy photography, walking in the hills, surfing on the beach, caving underground, reading and being with my family.   We needed a change of scenery, to get out of a rut and challenge ourselves so decided that life might be better/different down under so headed out to NZ in January 2008.  Eight years on we are truly esconsed in the Kiwi way and enjoying life!  For 7 years I worked in an all girls Anglican school teaching Spanish, organising Outdoor camps and exploring the use of technology to support teaching and learning.  In 2014 I was honoured to have been awarded  an eFellowship from Core Education.   This year I have taken a leap and left the classroom and I am now working in an advisory capacity with schools supporting them as they integrate digital technologies into their curricula for effective teaching and learning.

Live life, laugh long, enjoy!

    Hi. I read your blog. To be honest I do not know how I get to it (Im quite lost in this EDC, but i do not mind, as I just want to start). But surprisingly it has been very interesting for me. Just the title, My journey learnig is very good for me.

    Hi, just read your blog about your first day with the Coursera course. I recognize the bewilderment of where to start. I spending time reading the course materials, reading comments, looking at videos and looking at the options for the final assessment. For me also, the level of english is difficult.
    I would like to thank you for the links in your post, very interesting and something i will certainly use in my final assessment or my day to day life as a teacher.
