About me

I am a "Learning with Digital Technologies" facilitator, employed by the University of Waikato, working on the Learning with Digital Technologies project in the Te Toi Tupu Consortium.  Based in Taupo, I travel to schools all over central North Island to help them build their capacity for blended learning.  

After 33 years in the secondary classroom, and a senior manager for about 13 years, what an exciting time to be in education!  A new paradigm of learning! The New Zealand Curriculum has allowed teachers to make the changes to ensure students are well prepared for life in the future.  

I enjoy finding new ways to use ICTs to enhance learning and am particularly interested in e-portfolios, flipped learning, inquiry learning, and building capacity for independent, lifelong professional development for all.

I love to Google and am an authorized Google Education Trainer.

    Just legendary! As always! Thanks so much Leigh, your probing questions in the FORUM >>> Part 2 Personalising learning : Shallow and deep expressions of practice | An Enabling e-Learning event http://bit.ly/1pezyy0

    .....are thought provoking enough to stimulate a comment back straight away.

    So, thanks again, keeping this Forum alive can sometimes be a challenge...but we love challenges don't we? :-)
