About the author (2006)

Paul Warwick is a lecturer at the Faculty of Education University of Cambridge (UK) and is engaged in a range of research and teaching activities that link directly with his interests in primary science education and to the professional development of trainee and beginning teachers. Previously he was a primary school deputy head teacher and an adviser for science for a local education authority. He is a member of the editorial board responsible for developing web-based materials associated with 'Reflective Teaching' (Pollard 2005). His recent publications include work on procedural understanding, data interpretation and the scaffolding of speech and writing in primary classrooms. His interest in the learning affordances of new technologies for primary science can be traced to his work in the 1990s on data logging in the primary classroom and has been stimulated by recent work on a Gatsby-funded research project with a primary school cluster in Cambridgeshire.
