My Learning expands again for 2014

My Learning celebrates a busy 2014 with a further expansion of it's team during the last 3 months. If you want to meet these people in the real world, then head over to Stand F492 at BETT next week!

We are pleased to welcome Stephanie Woods who joined My Learning in September 2013. Stephanie brings a wealth of educational management expertise in Primary and Secondary arena's with many years service directly in schools and with Becta. Part of her new role is to consult with our development team and focus attentions on constant improvements to the product and to liaise directly with our audience. She's also the voice behind many of our new Youtube instructional videos, and those rather useful skills updates that you really should tune into -  for which we've received some great feedback!

Kim Bird joins the team for 2014 and has almost 20 years of experience in the Education Sector working directly with schools and colleges.  Kim managed a number of LA contracts delivering the first ICT suites into primary, middle and secondary schools in the North of England in the late 90s.  She then went on to work in partnership with a number of PFI and PPP schools advising them on current IT equipment and software, delivering a fully managed service solution into each establishment.  Over the last 8 years Kim has been working closely with primary, secondary schools and new academies to understand what they are trying to achieve with the use of IT and helping them to realise their vision with the use of Learning Platforms.
Kim mentioned “After seeing My Learning I was very excited about the engaging interface and amazed with the ease of use in comparison to other products I have experienced in the past.  My Learning truly is about 21st Century Learning, offering students a wide range of learning, productivity and communication tools and a whole suite of content from any device, including smart phones and games consoles”

And finally, we're pleased to welcome Oliver aboard our Frigate as a worthy apprentice on 1st line support. An accurate, and multi-talented 'whizz', we're already feeling old in his presence. Oliver is now assisting our 2nd line support structure and liaises directly with development to act as a human-conduit between the digital and real worlds.
