Paul graduated in 1984 and spent 3 years pursuing a career as an actor before starting teaching in 1987. He taught music, drama and dance in secondary schools and has always integrated edtech into his classroom. Slowly moving into teaching more tech and less music, he eventually started working for a local government education service in 2002 as a consultant and has been working in this field ever since, He has helped write national curriculum and advised on national government exemplar assessment materials. He now works as a Training and Consultancy Manager for a Google Premier Partner which allows him to continue to impact education institutions at all levels and work to integrate edtech into the learning experience without it getting in the way! He is a runner (plodder!), father of three grown up children and enthusiastic amateur musician. He is a great listener and really enjoys working with people to realise their passion.
