Matt Harris: Introducing My Column

by Matt Harris Expert Educator Columnist, Singapore “Learning is what most adults will do for a living in the 21st century.” – Lewis Perelman Right now, I’m eating peanuts contemplating what to write in my introductory blog post. I want to outline the lessons learned and the value of international education from ed tech perspective. I was thinking about a rehash of my CV or some Ben Franklin-esque series of quips that encapsulate my intention for this work, but I decided against it. Let me talk to you about Ed Tech in the international schools space by giving a tour of my team: I have Database Manager from India, Ed Tech coaches from Germany and the UK, IT techs from Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, and Pakistan, and librarians from the US, Holland, and various parts of SE Asia…and I’m from the US. We are diverse in culture, language, ability, and approaches to working and we are indicative of what you find in most international school. And let’s be honest, the rest of the world.
