Oh hi there!

Oh hi there!

Here’s a little bit of info about me… I’m a full time teacher at a secondary school located in Echuca, Victoria. As well as junior Humanities and English, I teach a Year Twelve History course called Revolutions.  

I’ve always been interested in how purposeful use of technology can play a part in classroom achievement. What is the relationship between the two? What tools are better than others? How can we use tech to put students work on a larger platform? How much of an impact can it have on results? The list goes on…

To date, I’ve been fortunate; working in an environment that has allowed me to explore questions like the ones listed above. We’ve been a 1-1 with computers using Macbooks for 5 or 6 years now. It was a huge learning curve to begin with, but now, most staff use them with confidence and are incorporating technology purposefully. 

Currently, my interests lie in creating online environments for my students and pushing them from the mindset of a digital visitor to that of a resident.

I’m looking forward to learning with this cohort! See you on the road!
