Welcome!

In this professional blog, my goals are to:

  • highlight and review technology that is fun and teaches children to be positive, intelligent and conscientious global citizens.
  • share my experience and perspective as a technology teacher for primary students for over 10 years and self-professed geek Dad of a pre-schooler and a kindergartener, to find teaching practices, lessons, and devices that positively influence their life and learning
  • collaborate and learn with colleagues wishing to integrate technology into their curriculum and extend my PLN globally

I look forward to your comments, discussions and collaborations!

Thanks for your visit.
