Trevor has 38 years practical classroom experience in the UK and in the British Columbia educational K-12 systems as a Science specialist, with the last 8 years as a Teacher-librarian. Since 1988, he has been involved in educational technology, especially in the use of the Internet for Education; he has given workshops at the School, School District and Provincial Level In October 2000 he became involved with a cacheing project at his school which was funded by the Canadian Department of Industry and other local partners including the Open Learning Agency and the British Columbia Ministry of Education. The project was implemented by Advanced Interactive, a Vancouver company specializing in delivery of the Internet by cable and satellite. The project was set up to investigate the possibility of cacheing whole websites onto a special cacheing server located in the school; the websites would then be delivered at LAN speeds from the cache to the students. This involvement led to an extension of the project through which the management of content in the cache, and the application of metadata to the process were further refined.
