Meet a ThingLink Expert Educator
Today we are celebrating Sue Fitzgerald, a connected educator and a member of the first group of ThingLink Expert Educators! We got to know and love Sue when she participated in the ThingLink Teacher Challenge over the summer. Meet Sue’s Digital Self.
Sue blogs at the Unpretentious Librarian where she publishes a wealth of useful information for educators from a Teacher Librarian lens. She is passionate about collaborating in the world of libraries and quite active on social media. Sue uses her blog to curate, create and publish resources to promote digital citizenship, reading and great ways to use technology. Sue loves ThingLink because “I’m all about student voice and choice – ThingLink offers both.”
