I am a freelance teacher educator in South East England, UK. I was formerly a Secondary (11-18) Science and IT teacher. I am the Science tutor on a Primary Teacher Training programme and train teachers in schools for several software companies. I have been interested in whiteboards for about 7 years and have worked for both Smart and Promethean as a freelance trainer. I am an accredited Smart Masters Trainer and have delivered training on Smartboards to schools, corporate clients and even the military!

I love using the boards for interactive activities - and try and focus on some of the simple things you can do which are so effective. Although I do like to play with all the whizzy features too!

I blog at The Whiteboard Blog and I host my whiteboard files on my Think Bank website. I can be found on Skype as danny.nicholson and on Twitter. I'm normally invisible on Skype, but fire a message to me and I usually respond :) You can also view my favourite whiteboard sites via my feed.
