Yvonne Mitchell

Director of Digital Strategy

BSc Geography, University of Durham

After 5 years working in Events Management and an extended period of worldwide travel including teaching in Peru I returned to Edinburgh to take my PGCE and joined the Fettes Geography Department in 2006.

After the arrival of 3 children in 18 months, I welcomed the opportunity to develop our fledging Virtual Learning Environment. Since then I have coordinated our activities in digital learning and am proud to have developed a strategy founded on pedagogical principles. At heart I am still a Geography teacher, just one who feels that the teaching of OS map skills can be richly enhanced by 3D mapping, virtual fieldwork and an ever growing array of apps and accessories. I thoroughly enjoy working in such a dynamic and exciting area of school life.
