Dr Christine Jack

Research Associate


Christine is a research associate in the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences.

Her doctoral research focused on the implementation and use of educational technologies in early years settings.

She supported schools across Northumberland to use ICT effectively before joining the Northern Grid for Learning. As eLearning Manager she provided support and training to primary, secondary and special schools across the North East and UK. She also led a group of eLearning consultants to develop digital resources for teachers and pupils. Christine completed an MBA in Education in 2006, at Keele University.
