dfjones's public profile


I'm passionate about getting computing across to learners and teachers.
After all, Computer Science is the science of (nearly) everything! I've taught mainly in the West Midlands but spent a couple of years across the border in Wales. Originally a Maths specialist, my real passion is in computing where I've been Head of Department/Subject Lead and set computing up in a number of schools. I've also worked as LA Consultant, first doing Hands-On Support and later as National Strategies Consultant for ICT. I've taught D&T and Business too, but getting machines to do stuff is what I love.
As well as being SME and CSC for the NCCE, I do some course facilitation and some tutoring. Always tinkering with programmable machines (remnants from a previous career) I like designing and making model aircraft and other miniatures to support a hobby of exploring "what-if" strategic and tactical outcomes of historical conflicts in contemporary time. I'm chair of one of the oldest wargaming societies in England. I'm a keen sailor and I enjoy tending a few livestock and my vegetable garden. I play ukulele for my own entertainment.
