James thinks its worth look - latest post

Welcome to my newly updated website which now includes my edtech blog 'James thinks it worth a look' in which I review a range of edtech sites and apps along with sharing my approaches to using technology in the classroom. 

I am passionate about how technology can be used to benefit teaching learning and assessment. I have a wealth of teaching experience with over 25 years of teaching across Further and Higher education. I am passionate about teaching and learning and how technology can be used to enhance it. 
 
In 2014 I won joint individual runner-up for the ALT Learning Technologist of the year for my work with Google sites, Google+, and other web apps and sites which I promote through my blog. In 2018 and again this year I am thrilled to be included in #Edtech50 a list that celebrates the work of the education technology sector in the UK and shines a spotlight on those pioneering a new future in education through technology. 
 
In my current role, I work as a learning and development manager for a large further education college group in the UK. My role is focused on the development of teaching staff which includes advising them on how they can make use of a varied range of technology as an integral part of their teaching, alongside some delivery on our teacher training programmes. I am always keen to share my knowledge and experience with others, and regularly do talks and run workshops at external events.
