Sachita Jeeta: Believe the Impossible – My Experience as an MIE Expert 2015

by Sachita Jeeta Expert Educator Columnist, Mauritius BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS! Great achievement was once impossible for me, until someone set a goal to make it a reality… Friday, 7th November 2014, something unbelievable happened. It was around 19hrs when I was checking my email. As usual I started deleting unwanted emails. Soon after, I saw an email “Razan Roberts (Vega Cons….”. I ignored it and said to myself “… all these spammy emails keep coming to my inbox… I’ll delete it later”. I continued reading and deleting my emails when suddenly the one I ignored appeared onto my screen. To my surprise the word “Microsoft” caught my eyes – Then I said “This is something serious!” I took all my time to read it and kept thinking “was all this true, or am I dreaming”. I read the email again and again and followed the Survey link, joined MIE Expert 2015 Facebook group, downloaded the OneNote Playbook, registered for monthly Connection Call and started following #MIEExpert15 hashtag on Twitter.

by Sachita Jeeta Expert Educator Columnist, Mauritius “New technology is common, new thinking is rare.” – Sir Peter Blake. This statement clearly refers to the impact technology is making in the lives of all our fellow educators. So as an Expert Educator Columnist, I have titled my column as “Emerging Trends in Educational Field”. It is all about thinking of new ways to bring to life the actual trends in Teaching with Technology. It means to adopt one tool or a range of tools in our daily teaching and learning process. However, same should be used effectively and efficiently. Dedication, Passion and Vision for the future should be of prime importance to educators. What is Emerging Trends in Educational Field all about?
