Eyes on the horizon. Feet on the ground

Professor Stephen Heppell is CEO of Heppell.net and holds the The Felipe Segovia Chair of Learning Innovation at Universidad Camilo José Cela (UCJC), Madrid.
Stephen’s “eyes on the horizon, feet on the ground” approach, coupled with a vast portfolio of effective large scale projects over three decades, have established him internationally as a widely and fondly recognised leader in the fields of learning, new media and technology. He helps to make learning better for everyone from schools, universities and parents, to the Team GB Olympians, the England Rugby team, BAFTA, national governments, and many others.

A school teacher for more than a decade, and a professor since 1989, Stephen has worked on some huge projects (Tesco SchoolNet 2000 was the Guinness Record holder for World’s Biggest Internet learning project), to the remarkable little Learnometer boxes at the heart of the IOT Big Data project Learnometer.net, which has now moved on to prototyping smart school furniture.

Stephen has been monitoring classroom conditions for years and researching the effects that the learning environment has on educational outcomes.  His team will incorporate data from Learnometers into their groundbreaking research.

“Everywhere we have tried this with our little prototype boxes people have been astonished by the damage that their learning environment has been doing to their learners’ potential.  We want to go on from there”
