|About the site and its author|
Introduction to the site
Now we are five. This site first appeared on the Web in March 1999, since when it has changed address several times, altered its appearance and grown rapidly. It contains resources for teachers and students of English language and literature, as well as basic information about how to acquire skills in ICT and Internet technologies.
About the author
I am a teacher, currently working for the Directorate of Lifelong Learning of East Riding of Yorkshire Council. (The East Riding is in the UK, mid-way up the map and on the east side.) If you really want to see a (recent) mugshot, then please click here.
I learned about English at Corpus Christi College, a college of Oxford University, where my tutor was Dr. (now Professor) Valentine Cunningham. I learned about teaching at Leicester University School of Education, then relearned much of it (several times) in real classrooms. More recently I learned about the uses of computing in education at the School of Engineering and Information Technology of the University of Lincolnshire and Humberside, now the University of Lincoln. In April of 2001 I helped found the Association of Teacher Websites.
If you would like to see a short version of my cv, click here. You don't have to know this stuff - but some students want to be reassured that I have some authority for what I write. (In the end, they will judge this site by the quality of its resources).
You may like to look at these other sites which I am developing.
There are many things I would like to be in this site that aren't here yet! Please be patient. I have covered some things quite well (for example, language at advanced level) while others I have barely begun yet. I have not done much in the way of interactivity and use of images - but expect more of this over time. If you didn't find what you wanted on this visit, you may still wish to visit again - the site will grow steadily over time.
If you would like help in writing Web pages or with other areas of ICT, you are welcome to contact me. I am not an expert (I can refer you to those who are) but an enthusiastic learner. Suggestions for content or improvement to this site are always welcome. But please do not take me to task for its imperfections - I know them better than you do.
