Dr. Ruth Wood

After teaching in primary education for ten years, I moved into higher education where I specialised in the use of information and communications technology in primary education. During the course of my work I have become increasingly interested in the development of multimedia interactive resources for both primary-aged children and for students within the School of Education. Much of my work has involved working with colleagues in the development of materials designed for specific contexts; for example an online interactive virtual primary school for student teachers who have chosen to specialise in information and communications technology. More recently, I have worked with multimedia developers, practitioners, researchers and an author of children’s picture books in order to design, develop and evaluate a multimedia text.
