Steve Molyneux, (born Walton, Liverpool, 24 February 1955) is one of the leading experts in the use of Information and Communication technology to support Education and Training in the UK. He is an outspoken advocate, but also challenges current Government and Industry thinking on how such technologies should be deployed. Whilst an early pioneer in the development of Virtual Learning Environments, he now believes that the way society interacts with technology and the Web must lead us to transform education systems from the late 20th century 'pull' model of e-learning to a newer 'push' model based on personalisation.
In 1999 he founded, together with Microsoft and ICL, Learning Lab, a not-for profit membership-led organisation, supporting all those involved in the Development, Delivery and Implementation of Learning Technologies in the UK.
Internationally, Molyneux has contributed to the use of technology to support education and training in a number of Countries including the United States, Germany and Singapore. He works closely with the United States Department of Labor and the Department of Defense on training technology strategies.
Molyneux is often asked to provide advice on the strategic use of ICT and Broadband Infrastructure to National, European and International Clients from both the Public and Private sector and performs numerous speaking engagements.
