Background is in mathematics education. My working life started back in 1981 as a secondary school mathematics teacher and served for 9 years. I then moved into the Curriculum Development as a promoter of ICTs in education and mathematics teaching for another 9 years.In 1991 I went back to full time study and graduated from the School of Education at the University of Nottingham (UK) in 1992, with an Honors Degree in Mathematics Education with special focus on the use ICTs and returned back to CDU. Between 1993 and 1997 I co-authored 7 mathematics titles under CDU. During the same period I also served as ZJC Chief Examiner for mathematics and as Examiner for O Level mathematics. I also led the development of the Zimbabwe Computer Assessment Program (ZIMCAP) and the participated in the localization of the Computer Studies Curriculum at O level. My period of civil service ended with the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into Education and Training where I made a contribution in the compilation of findings and recommendation for mathematics education. At the end of the commission I was granted early retirement from the Ministry in 1999. That is when I joined World Links as Education Coordinator. During my service as the Country Coordinator, World Links in Zimbabwe developed from being a Pilot to a national programme with 43 Telecentres established in schools and communities throughout the country offering basic ICT training and Telecollaborative learning opportunities to thousands of students and members of the local communities. In 2001 Big Blue, Zimbabwe's first Mobile Internet classroom, a project that Ted Sells, Tony Bloome and I championed was awarded a place in the top 100 ICT projects out of 742 submissions form all of over the world in the Stockholm Challenge and had the honor to present on the project in Stockholm, Sweden. Now as World Links Zimbabwe Executive Director, I oversee national programs focusing on the use of ICTs in education and e-learning in Zimbabwe and other African countries.
