Tony Parkin, Head of ICT Development for the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust will be speaking at this years Handheld Learning 2006 Conference.

Tony Parkin has worked in education for most of his career, as a teacher, an educational technologist and latterly as an information technologist (by a process of osmosis)

He joined the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust in an earlier guise in July 1998 as ICT Adviser, and has been with it through three name changes and a massive growth. He leads an ICT advisory service to the Trust and its network of affiliated schools, providing leadership, advice and guidance on the strategic development of Information and Communications Technology in education. He leads on a number of projects with international dimensions, including Teachnet UK, with the Teachers Network in the US and Ireland, and ThinkQuest UK, working with the Oracle Corporation. He is also directly involved in many of the Trust's range of ICT-related activtities, such as the ICT Register,  Strategic Leadership in ICT for Headteachers and teams, and the programme of Continuing Professional Development in ICT.

Originally a secondary school teacher of Biology and Head of Learning Resources, Tony joined the Inner London Education Authority in 1978 as an Educational Technologist, and worked in several secondary schools and FE colleges. He moved to ILECC - the Inner London Educational Computing Centre - in 1985 and progressed to Head of Curriculum Support by 1994 when the centre closed. Tony then became a founder member of the IT Learning Exchange in Autumn 1994, based at the (then) University of North London (now London Metropolitan University). A two-year period appointment as IT Training Manager at the House of Commons Library, starting in July 1995, was followed by a consultancy in IT Development at the Library, before joining the Trust in July 1998.
