OK that’s me – Mark Robinson. I have been known to frequent technology and education conferences and speak from time to time at them about technology and learning. I will often be found working with teachers in schools or at research workshops and will be trying to put what I learn there into making new things.
I am an ex primary school teacher, ex executive producer for a very big publisher, ex R&D director for a couple of Ed-tech companies and now a Strategist and Educationalist for the education technology company, Promethean. In an earlier, previous life I was involved in professional theatre, opera and ballet in London at Covent Garden’s Royal Opera House and still have a great love of the arts.
My deep passion and calling for many years though, has been education. I was asked to be a ‘pathfinder’ for technology in schools in the 90’s and through that a new world opened up to me and the students in my classes. I have never stopped looking, the technology jungle is even thicker and even more diverse and the adventure never ends!
In my spare time I play guitar & bass, walk in the mountains, paddle my Canadian canoe and generally do dad stuff.
