Biography

I am passionate about educational change! Assisting schools (education institutions) to evolve and address the changing educational challenges! Using technology (IT, robotics, coding, computational thinking) to enhance teaching and learning is a valuable key. Exploring teaching strategies, questioning techniques, using critical and creative thinking during lessons. #evolveschool
