Meet The Team
FRGS, MTA, BSc (Hons), PGCE
Founder of GeoVLE, Kirstin Coughtrie is a teacher, online tutor and mother of 3. She has a passion for using technology to
- bring bespoke learning experiences to every child
- to empower learners to take ownership of their studies at a time and pace to suit them
- allow educators to have flexible, inspiring, impactful careers
- to support parents and carers who choose to home educate or supplement their children's education
Kirstin has 8 years experience in digital learning in industry and in schools, using open source online technologies to design and facilitate Key Stage 1, 2, 3, GCSE, A level and graduate courses that flip the classroom and put students in the driving seat of their learning journey.
In schools, she has led whole staff CPD to demonstrate how technology has enabled a redefinition of the role of the teacher to coach and mentor, which enables more authentic, targeted and personal learning conversations to improve not only progress and attainment but a genuine lasting passion for learning.
Kirstin trains tutors to realise the potential of collaboration and discussion technologies for assessment to aid and transform teaching and learning over video conferencing. I am passionate about the use of peer assessment to encourage critical and compassionate thinking. Read more about our vision.
