Fanny Passeport

Bio: Fanny Passeport is from France and loves living in India. She is the whole-school Tech Coach at Mercedes-Benz International School in Pune, India. Fanny is a former graduate student in "ethno-ecology" and studied People-Tiger Conflict in Corbett Tiger Reserve (India) as well as the relationships between the "Bhotiya-Rongpa 'Tribe' and their environment in Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve" (India). Therefore, she teaches "Indigenous Knowledge System" (Theory of Knowledge) in her school. While studying ethno-ecology, Fanny enrolled in a correspondence course to learn about French Foreign Language Teaching Pedagogy. She taught English as a Second Language in France and then moved to India to teach French in international schools. She was first introduced to "Moodle" and slowly grew her interest in blended learning and technology integration. She became the "Tech-Savvy" colleague who helped others with technical glitches and started to read more about technology in the classroom. From a tool-centered approach, she started to develop an understanding of the impact and purpose of technology for learning. She became a Google Certified Innovator, Educator and Trainer as well as a Digital Citizenship Certified Educator (Common Sense Media) in 2014-15 and is now an engaged EdTech educator frequently presenting at local events in Asia: EdTechNext Bangalore (2015), EdTech Team Summit featuring Google Apps in Bombay (2014) and Hong Kong (2015), ASB Unplugged Conference in Bombay (February 2016) and forthcoming "Enovate Education Symposium" in Maldives (April 2016) She is passionate about design and moonshot thinking, change management and disruptive education. She continues to occasionally teach French as a Foreign Language using the 'Silent Way' (Caleb Gattegno). Fanny likes to share and collaborate online using social media, Google Hangouts On Air, YouTube and her own website: www.noborderslearning.com. She promotes a creative and positive use of technology, a vision which encompasses risk-taking and learners' voice, choice and agency in her school. She won the ISTE 2016 edtech coach and emerging leader awards.
