About

I spent a decade teaching physics in a further education college. For much of that time I was skeptical about the value of technology in learning, seeing it largely as a distraction to learners who were getting worse at the basics. I gradually realised that this attitude was basically irrational resistance though. I have gone so far as to quit teaching and have taken a masters in e-learning technology, in which I became most interested in game-based-learning. Since re-training, I have started working as a physics content writer for an education technology company, which has taught me at least as much as (and probably a lot more than) formal study did.
