We are a collection of worldwide educators that are passionate about making a difference in education. We use technology where it is useful in the classroom to enhance the experience.
We have all been made Apple Distinguished Educators in recognition of our work and continue to develop our own practice as well as help others develop theirs.
We decided to come together as a collective voice as we cover a full range of backgrounds, Primary, Secondary, Higher Education, SEN, Leadership and Consultancy. This gives us a unique approach to looking at how teaching is teaching, no matter what area you focus on.
