Since qualifying as a primary school teacher in 1999, Maggie has worked in large multicultural primary schools within the London area. In her first degree she initially trained as a primary science specialist but became interested in how technology can enhance learning in both science and other subjects. She is also a member of Naace and The Association of Science Educators (ASE)

Having worked with many children over the years I repeatedly observed that the use of good quality ICT enhances teaching and learning in all subject areas. They are often motivated to learn not just how the software and equipment works but also the topic in question.

Some areas that I am interested in researching are primary science education and the role that new technologies offer to help children’s understanding and knowledge of this subject. I’m also interested in using ICT to motivate disaffected learners, software design and evaluation and can new technologies support children with learning difficulties, both moderate and severe.

Following a request on Linked In for suitable apps to help autistic children communicate, I thought I would gather together some of the suggestions here.
