Welcome to my blog.

So, who am I?

I hold a PhD in Education, with the focus on the use of technologies to support the continuing professional development of teachers. My master’s degree focused on the problems of the gifted boy underachieving in the junior secondary school. My honours’ studies focused on the gifted child and my primary degree prepared em for a career as a secondary school teacher. Currently, I am an independent researcher focusing on the ways technologies can be integrated to support teaching and learning. My Curriculum Vitae can be viewed at christavanstaden.co.za.

Aim of this blog

To share my views on new technologies and innovations and where I share lessons designed to help you to use new technologies and innovations. I am a pragmatist, it is not sufficient to tell people about new technologies, I am also sharing my ideas on how it can be put in practice.
