Who am I?

Global Learner / Teacher | Author | Ph.D. Candidate at Istanbul University| AI + Blockchain Research Scientist

Hi, I am Arzu Kilitci Calayır

Global Learner: I believe that if you know a global language, you can be a global learner. In my opinion, in our century the most important thing is ‘want to learn and access to knowledge in the real or virtual world!’ So, be a global learner – advice to my students 🙂

Global Teacher: I love teaching what I learned new! Especially, I love teaching new technologies. So, I am a tech! teacher 🙂

Author: I wrote three computer science books with my university teacher. It is a big honor for me! I wanted to share my knowledge with my books. Because I love sharing what I know. Especially, I love sharing my knowledge with my students 🙂

Ph.D. Candidate at Istanbul University: I am very very interested in new tech. Like AI, Blockchain, etc. So, I am a researcher at Istanbul University. Being a student is extremely fantastic at Istanbul University:)

I have many kinds of individual or team achievements and continuous improvements during my teaching and learning life cycle like published books, articles about tech and education. I won three times ‘Cisco Instructor Excellence Award’ In the Middle East by Cisco. I recently completed the “Apple Teacher” certification program and became an official Apple Teacher. When I look at what has been behind all of these achievements! I see that if you love your job, you can move yourself to forward for success. As a result, I believe that these educational prizes or products are the result of being dedicated to your work in.

A few suggestions to new teacher candidates:) Explore your students’ skills. Explore your students’ desire in what they want to do and what they can do and how they can be successful. If you can be a good coach, they will help them to explore themselves and skills by coaching. You will be able to prepare them for life successes. In future, they will be happy people in society. This will be your main gain as a dedicated teacher! Learning is the locomotive of the teaching. So, never give up learning! 🙂

With my best wishes, Arzu
