Welcome to our new blog! I shall be posting here about the activities I am involved in under the grokbox hat to do with work in schools, tools I develop or use, cool stuff I find whilst trawling the net and other musings around the area of technology and innovation.
Grokbox was recently formed after I left the employment of Worcestershire County Council due to budget cuts from central government. Before the end came, I was working with schools in the county developing their use of technology for learning helping them step tentatively into the connected world beyond the four walls of their classrooms.
Alongside the front-line stuff I got a little time to spend on development projects like sending robots down to the British Museum, building virtual cholera hospitals and bending Uniservity to my will. Now that I work for myself, I hope to have more time to spend on those things and finally bring some of the many ideas bubbling around my head into being.
So if you’re in need of some innovation, like something I release into the wild, don’t like something I release into the wild or just fancy a natter about geeky stuff, please do get in touch!
