Kathryn brings to the company experience using a range of online educational resources as well as extensive use of Google Apps (Google docs, groups, hangouts, calendar, sites) and other useful education apps. She has experience using ipads, tablets, laptops and other gadgets in her classes that are both fun and engaging for her students as part of their learning.

Kathryn loves to blog and uses social media to connect with other teachers about their use of technology in the classroom and share her thoughts and views of the effective use of technology as a tool to engage students as they become responsible and respectful digital citizens of a modern age. When she’s not blogging, tweeting or playing with gadgets she like to read, bike ride, bush walk and spend time with her young family. She also enjoys a really good joke and a belly laugh.

Kathryn McGilvray has provided my colleagues and I with some excellent tuition in the many uses of a computer, computer software, ipad and iphone uses.  We have been extremely happy and satisfied with everything she has taught us and feel quite indebted to her, not only for what we have learned but also because of her friendly manner and patient instructions, even though all of us were at different stages of computer knowledge and of differing skills and abilities.  I would certainly recommend her as a teacher who cares for her student and is passionate about her subject.
