The Intangible

My bicycle lies still as I stare at the sky. Each cloud a fleeting thought, a momentary wish. Love letters are like the sky. Temporary, in motion, in transit.

 Totally intangible. Irredeemably irrelevant.

My next guest is anything but irrelevant. Unlike clouds and imaginary creatures flying gently through the blue, she has contributed enormously towards opening spaces of change and inquiry. The changes that trickle and trade as a result of her work and commitment to education and technology, are visible to many.

Nicky is the Director of Pedagogy of The Consultants-E (www.theconsultants-e.com), an online training and development organisation which helps teachers with technology in the classroom. She has been involved in EFL teaching and training since 1987, and is author of several methodology books about technology in EFL. She specialises in online teaching and training via virtual learning environments such as Moodle, and is currently writing a book about digital literacies. You can read more about Nicky here.

Nicky has also several other publications:

Teaching Online (with LindsayClandfield)

Imagination is never irrelevant.

Imagination has moments of touching the tangible.
