Clive Francis

Professional profile

From a background of secondary science teaching in the UK, Middle East and in New Zealand, Clive has developed a passion for the use of technologies to support learning. This led him to a position as an Education Technology Consultant working alongside Principals, technicians and teachers from a wide variety of schools. In this role Clive was instrumental in helping schools with strategic planning to ensure the ICTs used were robust and reliable to best support teachers and students. Since then, Clive enjoyed a shift of focus from the technical side of things to helping teachers to make the most effective use of the technologies themselves by facilitating professional learning for individuals, small groups and staff meetings.

Expertise

Clive's expertise lies in helping schools with making well informed decisions when it comes to investing in technologies and infrastructure. He has been involved in the planning and delivery of large network upgrades and the provision of managed services.

Personal statement

It's amazing how today's technology-rich, Internet-enabled society has affected the way we go about our lives. But I’m acutely aware that teachers don’t go into the profession to become technology experts, but rather to inspire and develop young people. Making it as easy as possible for teachers to do this is what I aim for.
