My passion is getting teachers to use ICT/social media for teaching and learning and helping people overcoming their fear of technology in a fun way. I facilitate training (ICT/social media) and develop materials and courses for schools, organisations, the Department of Education and for general use online in blended and e-learning scenarios.

I maintain, facilitate and are involved in various online communities of practice. I also indulge in a few blogs and wikis. If you want to join me in/on a few of my other spaces, feel free….

This project on how to change teachers’ classroom practice to incorporate mobile technologies, is where you will find lots of resources pertaining mobile technologies and innovative teacher strategies.
