He taught students in two secondary schools in France and in a Language School in Sydney, Australia.  For over three years he worked as a Senior Lecturer for the New Opportunities Fund (NOF), training nationally in over 100 schools, empowering teachers to make effective, engaging and relevant use of ICT in line with the advent of the internet in UK schools. He also served as a school governor and vice chair for seven years.

From 2004-2014 Paul worked in Luton as a Learning and Teaching Consultant at elearning@luton Regional Training Centre, helping teachers and pupils to make highly creative and exciting use of Apple technologies across the curriculum including the use of green screen technologies and working in a TV Studio. He led the deployment of over 2000 iPad in Luton schools and the deployment of authority wide Mobile Device Management.

Jonathan Slater: Jonathan has worked as a trainer/consultant/technician with over 50 schools nationwide, to help them implement mobile devices successfully into their school and curriculum. His experience from working in the classroom and the ‘backroom’ environment allows him to close that gap between technicians and teaching staff, ensuring all parties involved in any deployment have a clear vision. Before joining the Academia team, Jonathan worked in the film and television industry. During this time he would also work with primary schools providing small drop-in projects based around Film production on iPad.

For the last 18 months he has been delivering Teacher training sessions to all abilities covering a wide range of topics, from your basic iOS use right the way through to developing your curriculum with iPad. His enthusiastic and engaging approach allows for a relaxed learning environment, with 100% attendees saying they would recommend Jonathan’s training and found it beneficial to their development.
