The idea of a GEEK, these days is changing. It is now more trendy, cool, maybe even ‘hip’ to be a Geek. Being ahead in the world of technology is something to aspire to, a place where we want our students to be, something which is usually just out of our reach as before we know it technology has changed, advanced and become even more innovative. I am a bit of a GEEK not your stereotypical geek but the more recently found chic geek or rather in my case I am the new ‘ChicMEEk’.

Not only that but these people will be sharing their practice to build capabilities of other educators worldwide. And I am thrilled to say that this includes ‘me’.
