I’m a ESOL , EFL and English teacher and writer and have been teaching for a very long time. In fact, teaching is the only real job I’ve had, apart from my adventuring days when I was among many things, a cow farmer, a guitarist, a singer, a builder and many times – an unskilled labourer.
I’m interested in giving teachers and educators concrete examples and tasks on how to use technology within education. I get really tired of people explaining how good technology could be without saying how. I don’t really like theory but I know it’s important, without theory of course there would be roughly half of the books in the world and a lot less work for librarians and publishers and a lot less work for students who have to learn things they will instantly, and quite rightly forget.
I also write unpublished novels, the last one I wrote was about zombies and asylum seekers in the UK. Currently I’m writing about giant robots, a father and his disabled, dying son. You can read it here, but in all honesty, I wouldn’t bother, http://www.authonomy.com/books/43196/warmstone/ Each one takes me years to complete and I’m not sure why I bother. They give me something to think about though, while I’m riding the bus.
