International School History
is the work of Richard Jones-Nerzic, a history teacher currently
La Côte International School in Switzerland.
I was born,
educated and teacher-trained in Wales and first employed to
teach history and politics at Olchfa School in Swansea from 1993
to 1999. From 1999-2007 I was Head of Humanities at the
ill-fated International School of Toulouse and between 2007 and
2009 I was Academic Director at the British International School
of Bratislava, where in addition to history I also taught film.
From 2009 to 2016 I taught at the European School Brussels III where
most of this website was developed.
I am interested in the
application of ICT in the history classroom (especially digital
film) but I am fascinated by philosophical questions in history
teaching concerning epistemology and identity.
