Helping out #estict


Today I'll be helping out at the ESTICT (Engaging Students Through In-Class Technology) event here in Leicester. Mostly I'll be doing this by staying out of the way, keeping my opinions to myself and doing exactly what I'm told. Well, I might venture the odd tweet using hashtag #estict
