I have been teaching for 10 years. Currently, I am a headteacher in a small, very small, rural primary school in Argyll, on the west coast of Scotland. That sounds grand until you realise that I am the only full-time teacher in the school! My colleague teaches for a day and a half to allow me time for the never ending paperwork and planning. We have our EcoSchools Green Flag, and my colleague runs the Forest Schools programme. Outdoor learning plays a vital part in our pedagogy, which sees us as a community, learning together though a variety of experiences that seek to give an engaging context to learn. I am a dreamer! I see new technologies and dream of ways to use them in teaching & learning. Embedding them in my practice is another matter! I do get frustrated with the 'officially sanctioned' technologies. These tend to be slower, less flexible and somewhat dull compared to the organic mashups of the internet.
