I have a Promethean Board but there is no way I can use it like Paul Kercal. This man is using his time and talent to show us that our classroom technology rocks! We can all aspire to be this energetic, enthusiastic, skilled and dedicated. He works cross platform so that he is automatically showing the world and his students that diversity is classroom strength. He can teach fluidly as he is using technology but he also allows himself to engage with it so that he and his talents can provide vigour and depth to education and learning. He is talented, that is certain. He is also someone who learns how to use his tools properly and to good effect. He doesn’t skate across the surface of learning. Skill , talent , iteration and then the willingness to take his knowledge and apply it on another device and in another arena. I told you he was good. His YouTube videos are such an inspiration for using technology in a classroom and making it shine.
