Head of Professional Development, Discovery Education
As an excitable teacher, global educational speaker, change instigator and hopeless optimist, James has a Masters degree in Educational Studies, and a passion for research based, modern-day learning that works.
Aside from a number of roles in education, he held the position of Head of Year 6 at a large school in London, and was successful in driving up the overall exam results. His senior management experience has allowed for the development and sound understanding of the rigours of school improvement and an insight into the interconnected roles of staff, pupils, parents and the wider school community.
James has 16+ years’ experience working closely with schools on a 1:1 basis to improve the use of digital technology in classrooms and delivering effective and relevant professional development.
