About: Huuummmmm . . . . I'm a learning technologist at LJMU for past 5 years, but I 've been involveding in educational technology design for 15yrs. I'm seeking a bit of inspiration, as usual, from the ALT conference. I like the new innovative technology, but nothing is better than a simple technology used effectively.

I do bits of research but mainly I work with staff trying to get them to see the opportunities rather than the extra effort required to change their teaching.
