Interview with Ian Coulson, 3 July 2009
Ian Coulson was at the time of the interview school history adviser for Kent. He discusses the changes which have taken place in his work as an adviser since the 1980s. He talks about setting up the History Centre which supplied resources on local history for teachers in Kent. Over the past ten years these have been transferred to the web. Ian's first big ICT project for schools was in 1986-7, when data on the Armada was made available at the History Centre - latterly, he has created ICT links to enable schools to work together on history projects and visits to archaeological sites. This has particularly helped those teaching history in primary schools. Interviewed by Nicola Sheldon.
