Following my usual schooling and achieving all my Junior College entrance requirement a year earlier (yes I stayed a whole year on holiday), I aced all my exams at junior college, also achieved another 3 Advanced Level exams with stuff I studied in my spare time. Apart form IT and Computer Studies (which were school subjects), then on my own I did, Physics, Italian and Arts.
I remember the day i told my father that his son won't be going to University, just... because... it was never me, I hated theoretical learning, so i joined a higher education institution offering a vocational diploma and higher diploma in Computer Science. However, i got really pissed when my collegues were getting more pay just because they had a degree (albeit most of them were without experience and clueless). So then , I did two Master's Degrees my first Masters degree is an MBA in the Management of Information Systems which I did with the University of Leicester and then I followed it with a Master's Degree in Computer Science an MSc.Cs. specialising in software development and e-learning.
My MBA dissertation was about creating a new model for assessing post-project reviews which special attention to knowledge management, on the other hand my MSc focused on creating a new algorithmic system that provides customised feedback for automated formative assessments based on the learner profile of the student.
I am currently reading for two doctoral degrees . A PhD in Computer Science with the DeMontfort University which I'm currently in the process of moving to the University of Malta, and a PhD in Education with the University of Leicester. Both of these are currently in stasis I still haven't managed to get a scholarship or grant.
I did a lot of research on several subjects however, one of the most important research documents i have done in the past years and published is for the ministry of education in Malta which is entitled "Computing Core Entitlement for all" which outlines the national strategy for Digital Education in all state schools nationally. This document was also cited by the European Schoolnet.
