For everyone else I've been in education (mainly k-12) for thirty years most of it overseas and most of that in Hong Kong and now Thailand. Most of my work in the last few years is related to ICT (Information and Communication Technology) in Teaching and Learning and I'm a real fan of everything Web 2.0 ... maybe even an evangelist ... try out some of my links on the right to learn more.
