Profile and Interests

Originally from the UK now living in rural Western Australia. I have a background in science, equine studies (including teaching horse riding) and in the the transferrable/employability skills. Currently a lecturer in Literacy and Numeracy (with some IT) in the public Vocational Education and Training sector (TAFE). My students are very varied: culturally & linguistically diverse mature age adults; people with intellectual disabilities; "Youth at (educational) Risk". When I teach face to face classes I have five literacy levels, this combined with the human diversity of my learners makes e-solutions almost essential for me in the classroom. Currently (2010) I am teaching solely online across three/four literacy levels with regional/remote students. This is an innovative programme as it is both the first completely online programme in my college, and (we think probably) the first of its kind with these learner target groups. I use Virtual Classroom (Elluminate) a lot, the WebCT CE6 Learning Management System and anything else "e-" that might help to provide a blend that aims to give this learner cohort enough support and flexibility to keep them on track. I love to learn myself and have a passion for opening these same doors for learners. I enjoy exploring “e-stuff” immensly and see this as an essential addition to my “toolbox” for engaging and motivating learners. I use Virtual Classroom (Elluminate) a lot and also the WebCT CE6 Learning Management System, but will also explore, learn and use any e-tool that might add to my students' learning experiences.

I have developed, gained funding for and managed/facilitated a number projects in e-learning contexts since moving to WA and in the course of these, my current lecturing role, and my PLN have facilitated and supported other lecturers in my organisation and elsewhere in using e-solutions.

I can be found in the following places:
- facilitating webinars in the Edublogs Elluminate room http://bit.ly/17lTIE (usually Thursday GMT 23:00)
- Twitter http://twitter.com/JoHart (constantly)
- My blog http://johart1.edublogs.org (when I have time!).

"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
