About me

Enabling e-Learning online facilitator. I currently work for CORE Education as the online facilitator for the Ministry of Education's Enabling e-Learning and CORE Education's community of practice, edSpace.

A big part of my role, is to help build a sense of community identity in the VLN community groups space. I'm here to help support partnerships within our professional network - which includes brokering relationships within and beyond the VLN.

I'm also here to support community members mentor others online, as we share opinions, ideas, resource and teacher reflections - that will enhance learning opportunities for all our learners. A priority focus will concentrate on conversations and live events that focus on the effective role of e-learning in education. This will happen largely within the Enabling e-Learning community groups. Come join me there!

My educational background spans 28 years - both here and in London. It includes generalist classroom teaching, art specialist, art adviser, ICT adviser, ICT PD national facilitator and recently as an online facilitator.

At home, I am the third child of four. I have a fabulous partner, cheeky son and two gorgeous step-children. Life is pretty good in the sunny BOP. I'm proud to be a published author of five books on art and ICT.

Please feel free to drop me a line or leave me a message at any time. I'd love to hear from you Smile
