Urban Teacher

Mark Martin aka Urban Teacher does much more than working as an ICT teacher in a London secondary school. He sees his role as that of a true technology evangelist working in the education system and is passionate about getting the most innovative technologies into the hands of learners.

In these roles, he has noticed widening gaps between the needs and capabilities of all the stakeholders he encounters – teachers, students and their parents and the programmers and app developers supplying schools with software and content.

Keen for these gaps not to widen further, Urban Teacher is very passionate about reducing the distance between schools and the wider world of technology.
