Hi, my name is Koen and welcome to my website.
I am the head of IT at Rozenberg S.O. in my hometown Mol, Belgium. Before taking this administrative role, I was a music, history and IT teacher. In my role as head of IT, I am responsible for the 1:1-iPad deployment in my school as well as the integration of technology in the classroom.
In my opinion, technology can have an important role as a learning tool. Especially mobile devices can facilitate creativity, collaboration and critical thinking.
Besides my activities in my own school, I frequently speak about technology in school and provide workshops. As a certified Apple Professional Learning trainer, I facilitate PD session on the use of Apple technology in learning.
I also am a frequent ICT Atelier trainer.
In 2011 I was awarded the title Apple Distinguished Educator and I cannot emphasise enough how proud I am of that! Being part of this global community of outstanding teachers has made a huge impact on how I teach and on how I help others to become better teachers and leaders at school. In the 2015-2017 period, I was a member of the ADE Advisory Board for the EMEIA region.
I am a Google Certified Educator.
