with people in the education and tech-ed fields. 

Twice a month, I chat to people about an education and/or tech-ed related topic. (Free)

It all began in 2020 with the request to assist teachers coping with lockdown and remote learning.

That led to th 12 hour EvolveSchool 🚀Edu-Change Exploration🚀for School Leaders and ALL Teachers, a 🚀 journey of 👀 discovery on 27 Aug 2020, 09:00 to 21:00, in our educational virtual 😷 conference. Free all day hop in and out virtual conference for school leaders and teachers.  Every 20min slot introduced different educational tech corporates, mainly South African,  interspersed with amazing edutech teachers, sharing ways in which they are used technology.
