John’s pedagogical interests centre around the use of eLearning particularly relating to the use of mobile touch-screen computing devices as learning tools.
John is interested in the parallelism between technology and learning and he is currently researching new concepts in virtual learning environments. His previous contributions to the field include the construction of a "virtual reality" MRI scanner for learning and teaching and other web based interactive learning materials. He is also a registered Apple iOS and Android developer and is undertaking research in the field of touch-screen mobile devices as educational tools. More recently John has been creating computer generated high definition movies and anaglyph 3D diagrams of MRI concepts. Some of these CGI resources are included in the web content for the latest edition of the World's best seller MRI in Practice and were used in the illustrations for A Handbook of MRI Technique.
