About me

I'm a Senior Researcher at NZCER. My work in education research is driven by an endless curiosity about the world and a strong commitment to better educational experiences and outcomes for all learners, as well as teachers, families, and communities. My research interests include: - future-oriented education - young people's views and experiences of schooling - environmental education/education for sustainability - school-based curriculum development and innovation - science education - education for enterprise - the role and potential of digital technologies in education - and most recently, digital and old-school game development approaches.

    Hi Rachel
    I have been following the discussion on Personalised learning closely, as this is just one component of my CORE eFellow14 inquiry. I also enjoyed reading the 'Supporting future-oriented learning and teaching - a New Zealand perspective' publication. Thank you!
    Nga mihi
    Marnel :-)

    Awesome! I'm having a great time reading everyone's contributions :)

  • Tessa Gray

    Wow Rachel thank you for your wonderful contributions to the thread on Personalising learning. That particular reading is one of my bibles. Wonderful work from NZCER (again), great to have the background context too, thank you.

    As and when we touch on the gold from NCZER, I'll try and remember to pass it back to the team for their input online too - for more gold (straight from the horses mouth).

    Nga mihi nui,
