Meet your Instructor

Director/Course Facilitator Michael Hilkemeijer

As a teacher for over 15 years, Michael has taught and learned about the effective integration of technology in education through his teaching practices and studies. He has a Masters in Education (ICTE) that focuses on effective instructional design and for over the past 10 years he has studied literature and case studies on the art of successful technology integration in education - the development of ICT capability. Through this process, he has written many articles, both online and in national magazines on the best practices for teachers in early childhood and primary education to develop ICT capability. One of which is the continual support of teachers in their professional learning.
