Qualification and Interests- I have a PhD in Educational Technology, and as such I have a keen interest in #social media, #technology and #learning. I have been involved in I.T. and education for over 20 years and have spoken around the world to everyone from politicians to corporate leaders to parents to children. However my interests extend beyond this to many other areas such as #travel, #fitness, #online-teaching, #web-safety and #more. I enjoy pushing the boundaries of teaching and learning as well as my own physical boundaries, having run over 30 marathons (42km/26mi) and 10 #Comrades Marathons (90km/56mi). My mission is to creatively inspire people!
