About me

Stacks Image 5

I'm a 44 year old educator from the West Midlands and have been teaching Science and KS3 Computer Science since 1997. In addition to teaching I consider myself a digital maker and content creator. I am a certified Raspberry Pi Educator, speaker and workshop facilitator.

Digital making is at the heart of The Maker Cupboard.

‘Digital making’ is one term that is used regularly in discussions about technology education. My impression was that it was a term particular to this field, but a review of the academic literature recently turned up themes in architecture, fine art, engineering, education and many others. Although the term is fairly descriptive, making something with digital technology, the focus of it’s use and the connotative meanings that people bring to it is often quite different in these different fields.
