Notes on contributors

Chris Abbott taught in primary, secondary and special schools for 16 years before joining King's College London in 1994, and has taught on the English and ICT PGCE as well as developing Masters modules on information and communications technology (ICT), literacy and the Internet. His recent publications include ICT: Changing Education (2000), Symbols Now (2000), SEN and the Internet: Issues for Inclusive Education (2002) and Symbols, Literacy and Social Justice (2006). His research interests focus on ICT, literacy and inclusion, and he has led a series of projects on the use of symbols for communication and literacy.

Philip Adey taught science in a school in Barbados for some years before becoming involved in curriculum development and teacher education programmes in the Anglophone West Indies. This led to his questioning the nature of difficulty in science concepts, and a PhD on cognitive development in the Caribbean, which he pursued while working in the Concepts in Secondary Mathematics and Science Concepts Project at Chelsea College. After a spell with the British Council in Indonesia, he returned to Chelsea/ King's College to work with Michael Shayer on CASE (Cognitive Acceleration through Science Education). This eventually required significant attention to the question of how teachers might effectively be helped to develop their practice. Adey is now Emeritus (that is, retired) Professor of Science, Cognition, and Education at King's.

Louise Archer is a reader in education policy at King's. Her research interests include issues of identity and inequality in relation to 'race'/ethnicity, social class and gender. Her publications include Race, Masculinity and Schooling (Open University Press, 2003), Higher Education and Social Class (with Alistair Ross and Merryn Hutchings, Routledge, 2003) and Understanding Minority Ethnic Achievement (with Becky Francis, Routledge, 2006).

Paul Black is Professor Emeritus of Science Education at King's. He was Chair of the Government's Task Group on Assessment and Testing in 1987–1988
