Mat started in education as a PE teacher in 2002 and quickly saw the benefit of bringing a bit of creativity into his teaching to engage and enthuse learners. As soon as he got his hands on mobile technology it gave him the tools to further develop that creativity. Having worked to develop learning and teaching in PE he also developed a whole school approach to the use of technology. In 2013 he worked with local consortia to help develop schools approaches to their use of technology to support literacy and numeracy through PE. Following this he worked for an edtech consultancy company across the globe to advise and support schools and local government on their technology uses to enhance learning and teaching.
In 2016 he started work in teacher education at the University of South Wales where he now looks to develop the approaches of the next generation of teachers in the UK and beyond.
Mat has spoken at many recent high profile events both in the UK and abroad on the use of technology in the classroom.
