My name is Derek Moore. For want of a title, I describe myself as an “ed-tech support specialist”. Other’s within my area of expertise might use the label “educational developer”,” instructional designer”,” learning technologist” or “learning engineer” to describe the positions that I might be expected to fill. to keep things simple, I call myself an “ed-techie”.
I am a South African who has been fortunate enough to work as a consultant, academic developer, content manager, IT integration specialist, high school teacher and youth worker. My academic background is in Computer Assisted Education (MEd), Teaching & Learning (B Ed & HDE) and History (BA)
This blog is a work in progress, not a final product. It’s an open space, where I think out loud. I try to share here, tell stories for change, narrate what I know (and unpack what I don’t understand).
