I'm generally interested in technology and how it is applied to situations, particularly in a tertiary context as I'm also completing a PhD in Marketing. I have seen different approaches to using technology in the classroom which I am intrigued by.

I'm by no means a coder or tech creator and you might call me "cautious" about some technology like social media and this idea of a digital footprint.

I also like the idea of people being buffers between complex tech and a simple user experiences and encouraging people to have a go, try some technology, pressing the wrong button won't be that bad.
