Martin’s Leaving Message

So the lovely Martin Hawksey ALT’s Chief Innovation, Technology and Community Officer is leaving ALT Association for Learning Technology this week … I am afraid still completely in denial that he is going … I will miss him so much as a member of our little team at ALT and my go-to person for pretty much most computer-ee type stuff ….
