Mark is a Google-Certified Teacher and Google Education Trainer who helps schools work smarter, communicate better and improve learning outcomes by moving to the cloud and towards the server-free school.
In his role as Director of Transformational Technology for Delegated Services CIC, a not-for-profit Community-Interest Company, and under the @edintheclouds banner, his focus is on helping educational establishments transform themselves by making technology invisible, both internally and externally, and he has shown hundreds of school leaders how they can leverage contemporary possibilities to move their organisation to the cloud and their teams to new models of teaching and learning.
Mark is also a governor at a small rural primary school doing extraordinary things with new technologies and pedagogies based on cloud technology. He has taken those ideas out to others and now works with more than a hundred schools, plus the clusters, trusts, alliances, federations and other groups which are the features of the new educational landscape, showing them how a roadmap based around the three essential strands of Technology, Pedagogy and Leadership/Engagement can be developed to ensure success and transform schools into nimble, adaptable learning organisations.

Chris has been teaching in primary schools for over 10 years and has used technology in every classroom since the very beginning. He firmly believes in a cross-curricular and social approach to learning with children needing to talk, to play, to fail and to improve. Technology is now enabling children to do this outside the classroom and he firmly believes that we are on the edge of something amazing in education – a new chapter in what schools will look like and how children will become outstanding life long learners.
He believes that flipping your classroom is a way to truly personalise the learning experiences of the children in your classrooms. His book – Pause, Rewind Mt Teacher: A Flipped Approach to Learning is out now.
