Saqib Safdar | firstname.lastname@example.org |e-AST and Teacher of Mathematics
Saqib started teaching Maths in 2004 at a sixth form college in London. He began using technology as a form of blended learning to stretch the gifted and support less able students. He found by applying Vygotksy’s zone of proximal development, he could get students to solve problems creatively and collaboratively online. Saqib was soon appointed as e-Learning champion. In 2009, he travelled and worked in the Middle East. This gave him the wonderful opportunity to learn more about government initiatives, which invest in technology to create a pedagogical shift from one suited to the industrial age to one for the information age. He is currently based in the UK, working as a teacher of Mathematics and e-Advanced Skills Teacher.
