Welcome to Digital Classrooms
This site was created in 2012 as part of a new job I had taken supporting schools with edtech – specifically iPads – in Hackney. I then undertook an MA in Education Technology at the University. I found it really useful to have a blog where I was able to keep the resources and ideas I had, and so when I went back to full time teaching, and eventually Headship I kept this.
It draws on my experience as a teaching and learning consultant in East London and an Associate Deputy Headteacher in Primary schools.
Fast forward 9 years and it really does feel as if education, and indeed society, has been through some seismic changes. As I write this, I have just left teaching – moving into a job with a charity in Cumbria (Cumbria Action for Sustainablity) – and about to embark on an MSc at the University of the Highlands and Islands in Zero Carbon Communites. This site however still feels so important to me. And, because I doubt I am finished with education I will continue to update.
Thanks for reading – feel free to leave a comment or ask a question – I can be found on twitter @bekblayton!
