We have got a double act joining us on the podcast and we have two men who are in that unenviable position of leading IT in their organisations. Both of them are newly minted Google Certified Innovators and are really keen to join up IT teams with teachers, making it easier to work together.
Abid is the IT Director at the Leading Learning Trust in London and has been working in EdTech for over 15 years. He is a Google Certified Innovator having graduated from the recent #LON19 academy and is a passionate advocate for sustainable digital transformation in schools. He was most recently described by one of his fellow innovators as "a natural positive force and dreamer with 10X ideas”.
