    Pupil Vision

    This web site was built to support the pupils studying geography at King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Boys in Birmingham. It has grown beyond it's original design to over 1,000 pages. http://www.pupilvision.com

    My principal website was launched in 1999 to support my pupils in their study of secondary school geography. However other school and pupils have found some of the resources useful. These resources include lesson plans, syllabus material and articles. http://www.pupilvision.com

    Introduce yourself here

    I am a geography teacher and Head of year at King Edward VI Camp Hill school for Boys in Birmingham, England. I have been teaching since 1974 and have just completed 30 years working in education. In 2001 I was given the award of UK Teacher of the Year for the 'most creative use of ICT'. In 2003 I was also a recipient of a BECTa 'ICT in Practice' award for using ICT in my classroom teaching. My pricicipal web site received the accolade of a 'New Media' award from the New Statesman, also in 2003. In more recent times I have been working for the DfEs as a member of the 'ICTIS' (ICT in schools) practitioners committee. My particular interest is the effect that using ICT has on learning. The use of multimedia and web based resources leads to improved engagement. I have been able to develop multimedia CD Roms for Birchfield Interactive. I have also provided content for other websites, such as Learn.co.uk, geographyonline.co.uk and the DfES website, TeacherNet.gov.uk. My recent work has included consultancy for the Guardian, Sony and Microsoft. http://www.pupilvision.com http://www.revisionbuster.com http://www.geoworld.co.uk http://www.virtualfieldwork.com

    GCSE Hybrid

    This is the first we have heard of this proposal. At this stage we see nothing to be concerned about as talking should do no harm. However if it becomes a firm proposal there will be concerns that there will be a watering down of the curriculum by combining two key academic subjects.
