A colleague in America (where else?) has reminded me that we're approaching World Teachers' Day (or, as our US colleagues refer to it, World Teacher Appreciation Day) according to UNESCO. I kind of feel the usual British-stiff-upper-lip about this kind of thing, but will join with all of my other Microsoft blog writers and write an item on the day about the teacher who changed my life as I was passing through their care. My example is related to cinematography (I'm too old for it to have been related to 'computing', as it was then) but I wonder if there are a wave of pupils leaving schools more recently who would describe an interaction with their teacher, and ICT, that would have changed the course of their life?
