From time to time, we feature guest blogs from educators who are making a difference in the lives of young people and who are eager to share their success with the Microsoft Education community. These Changemakers, as we call them, offer insights into the effective use of classroom resources, how to prepare today’s youth for the jobs of tomorrow, and ways that technology can personalize instruction and empower students to lead in their learning. Today’s Changemaker blog was written by Koen Timmers, a computer science educator and author in Hasselt, Flanders, Belgium. Koen is a lecturer at PXL university college in Hasselt and co-founder of TAG Inc., a nonprofit in the United States. He has been a top-10 finalist for the prestigious Global Teacher Prize and is a Microsoft Expert Educator Fellow. He is also the founder of the Kakuma project, through which educators across the world offer free education to African refugees via Skype.
