As a teacher and educational leader for 15 years, I have initiated, developed, and implemented school wide effective digital learning practices to enhance teacher and student competencies to better incorporate 21st century practices in several settings. Due to my work I have presented at various State, National and International Conferences including uLearn 2010 and ’12, VITTA10 to ’12 and ICTEV State Conference 2010 to ’12. I have also had the opportunity to Keynote the DLTV Digi Learn 2015, ALIA 2013 and the 2012 GTAV Conferences.
I was an inductee to the Google Teacher Academy in 2011, held at Google in Sydney, and am now a Google Certified Teacher. In 2014 I attended again yet however this time acting as a mentor for the new inductees.
In 2013 I was selected to join the ADE (Apple Distinguished Educator) Community and attended the induction institute in Bali, Indonesia. In 2014 I attended the 20th Anniversary of the ADE program in San Diego, United States.
My passion has always been the challenges involved in achieving whole school approaches to the seamless integration of highly consistent teaching and learning practices with the core foci being on deep, quality learning and effective digital inclusion. I encourage ALL students to be inquisitive, responsible and creative global citizens who are well informed. 2016 will see me in a new role as the Assistant Principal for Curriculum Innovation & Design at Ashby Primary School in Geelong, Victoria.
