I despise the discourse that says we are all shallow, that we are all flighty, distracted, not paying attention. I am paying attention, but I am paying attention to everything, and even if my knowledge is fragmented and hard to synthesise it is wider, and it plays in a vaster sphere, than any knowledge that has gone before.

I'm a teacher and a technologist. I spend time thinking about the present and the future of both education and technology. I'm just like you, except I live 10 years in your future.

My main interests are in mobile learning, one-to-one deployments and, currently, the use of iOS in education. I deployed the world's first whole-school 1:1 iPad program at Cedars School of Excellence in Greenock, Scotland. I now run a 1:1 Chromebook program there. I'm also interested in robot cars, drones, the New Aesthetic, paperless workflows, eliminating email, non-rivalrous consumption, travel, novel workspaces and living an agile, technology-enhanced life.

I frequently speak at conferences and workshops. If you need a speaker on edtech topics or if you're planning a 1:1 project and would like some help, you can get in touch.
