Ben is the technology for learning lead in a growing Multi-Academy Trust of schools spread around the South East of UK. He is a Google for Education Certified Innovator and Trainer as well as a Microsoft Expert Educator. Ben has been teaching mathematics to 11-18 year old children since 2004 and performed both pastoral and academic roles in this time including head of mathematics at a large outstanding secondary comprehensive for boys in Surrey, UK.
Ben has a Masters Degree in leading innovation and change in education, which has been very relevant to support his role of embedding technology as an effective learning and teaching tool in his own and other’s classrooms.
Ben’s growing experience in using technology to support learning began with his professional twitter account, which introduced him to wikispaces and Google forms, which he used to share resources with his classes and get feedback on his lessons. Ben spent his time bypassing his school’s systems in order to use technology to support learning. This ultimately lead to him being given the role of embedding technology for learning at his school and now across schools containing children from 4 to 18.
Ben has been able to share his experiences in UK and beyond, presenting at BETT, schools insets and for Appsevents across Europe in he has also delivered training sessions and keynotes in Qatar and New Hampshire, USA.
