About the Presenter : I am originally from Leeds, West Yorkshire in the UK.  Although this is only my second year teaching in Dubai, I have been teaching for 18 years and much of that time has been spent as ICT Subject Leader as well as being a specialist Primary ICT teacher.  I also qualified with Advanced Teacher Status and advised other schools in this area of the curriculum.  I am currently a Year 5 teacher at JESS Arabian Ranches Primary in Dubai and thoroughly enjoy my role as an Infusion Leader, finding innovative new ways to incorporate mobile technology into our curriculum.
