David Seume

Between 1971 and 1999, I taught in UK Primary Schools (with students aged 4-12), becoming a Headteacher in 1987. I always had an interest in the role of IT in education and in 1981 set up my region's first In-Service Training IT programme for teachers.

At the beginning of 2000, I left Headship and I began working on several projects at the Ashcombe School – a state comprehensive school that is also designated as a Language College. I have also been an online tutor at the Open University teaching courses on the history and development of the Internet.

Much of my work at The Ashcombe has involved designing, developing and maintaining the school’s extensive website, with its wide range of web-based learning resources. Other tasks have included working with colleagues in various departments (faculties) on a range of developments, mainly web- or video-based, and also supporting similar work in local schools.

Since September 2015, I have been employed as a web consultant, supporting colleagues develop new skills.
