As a Google for Education Certified Innovator, Google for Education Certified Trainer and a technopedagogue in support of provincial digital schools initiatives, I demonstrate how the effective use of technology in the classroom can strengthen pedagogy and increase student engagement. An engineer by training, but a teacher by nature, I offer professional development sessions across North America and beyond on the pedagogical integration of new technologies.
