An Irish/Australian passionate about network learning, web2.0 and working with and fostering the creativity of students to create and share their own resources, achieve their learning outcomes and form their own personal learning networks. I train and support teachers and trainers to learn and employ Web2.0 technologies in their practice.. Am currently working in VTE creating online resources and helping to build online communities and networks of teachers and learners from various trades and occupations.
