Simon Elliott
My name is Simon Elliott and I have been teaching since 1992. I graduated in ‘91 with a BSc. in Chemistry and took a PGCE 1992 in Science and Mathematics. From ‘92-’98, I taught Chemistry at 11-16 before moving into an LEA central team, supporting schools as the NGfL was rolled out with training and development of their IMS. For the last thirteen years I have taught IT from Key Stages 1 to 5, in maintained and independent schools, including boarding. I am now introducing CS at GCSE level and developing Python skills, as well as other IT programmes. I have also written bespoke Challenge Based Learning materials. Over the last two years I have developed an iPad 1:1 scheme developing hardware and software to ensure value for money as well as effective curriculum delivery. I am an Apple Distinguished Educator and the main trainer for the Penzance Apple RTC. I am available for consultancy in Cornwall about integrating digital creativity and Apple products.
All materials and resources used on this course will be made available to all delegates after the course.
