David Hellam

I teach IB Computer Science and Key Stage 3-4 ICT/Computing courses at Riverside School, Prague, Czech Republic.
I have also taught in the Bahamas, Kuwait and the UK.

I joke that I am a lapsed mathematician, as I trained originally as a mathematics and computing/ICT teacher.

I attended GTAUK 12 in London: you will find my reflections on the experience here
