Adam Blackwood:
Equipping learners for study – The Tangible Toolbox


Adam Blackwood,

Adam studied at various places, learning about clock mechanisms in green crabs on one course and learnt how to teach brown trout to feed themselves on another course. Realising that these skills might not be best for a career at the time, he ended up teaching IT and Computing (after a couple of more courses).

He is really enthusiastic about the role of technology to help learners. Adam likes the use of mobile technologies, used appropriately, to enhance learning opportunities and environments for learners. He is always keen, where possible, on solutions that work easily with least effort and best impact. He has spoken at various national and international conferences (although, sadly, never on crabs or fish) and loves teaching. And he always liked the value technology has to enhance learning spaces and opportunities in all parts of a student’s learning experience. He has been involved with education for over 20 years. He has worked a lecturer, a curriculum head, an e-Learning Business Development Manager, a regional Manager, e-Learning Advisor and currently is an education Account Manager with a focus on future technologies for the UK government funded elearning support organisation known as Jisc. He has sat on various steering groups for education technologies. He likes; driving (with music technology); walking on mountains (with GPS tracking technology); running and cycling (with activity monitoring technology); swimming underwater (with depth, time monitoring technology).

He also likes… technology.
