I maintained this blog as an Instructor in the Professional Educator Diploma at the American University in Cairo (AUC), Egypt. I was privileged to teach teachers from a variety of public and private schools in Egypt. I was humbled by the experience as I learnt a lot from them. The course focused on integrating technology into the classroom. This blog showcases many of the teachers’ projects during the course. Though the course has ended, its memory remains vivid in my mind and heart. My work with teachers fuelled my current research on teacher professionalization policies and the politics of teacher professionalism in Egypt. I am currently working on my research as a PhD Student in Educational Studies, at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.
