I’m a big proponent of using new technologies in education. I’ve used new pedagogies like Flipping the Classroom to achieve more differentiation. Use social media for anytime/anyplace learning. Videogames and web 2.0 tools broaden the pedagogical palette tremendously. And social media has allowed me to reach out to other teachers, researchers, school leaders, policy makers and politicians to gain new insights and influence education on a national level. Without social media I wouldn’t have been able to publish a book (with Rene Kneyber), Het Alternatief, which tries to offer a new way of changing education. Both for students and teachers new technologies offer tremendous opportunities.
