My name is Gerald Donovan and I have three roles as an educator; 1. I am a father – to two wonderful girls. 2. I am a teacher and teacher trainer, and 3. I am the Director of Sekolah Bogor Raya, an international standard school in Bogor, West Java, Indonesia. (I also occasionally write on education for the Jakarta Post and am a freelance trainer on Web 2.0 technologies and education).

In this blog I try to reconcile my thoughts and feelings from those three perspectives (my “Three Thinking Hats” if you will) and try and use my insights to make sense of modern education and the impact of the new technologies. The Read/Write web is revolutionizing how we interact with our world and I am only one of many educators trying to plan for a highly unpredictable future.
