My name’s Ginette Van Praag and I've joined the VLN Primary Team this year, working as their eLearning Support Facilitator and National Co-ordinator
I have been a teacher of ICT and Digital Technologies for almost fifteen years and I am passionate about using digital technologies to transform teaching and learning experiences in the classroom. I have a special interest in teaching young people programming and computer science and run a VLNP Scratch programming class every Friday.
I am originally from the UK and came here when my two sons were small. One son started university this year studying Law and Business, the other is half-way through Year 13. Both are excellent sportsmen. I am an avid kitchen gardener and maintain a third of an acre section in rural Whangarei, where we also enjoy the company of two dogs and a cat.
