About me

Enabling e-Learning online facilitator. I currently work for CORE Education as the online facilitator for the Ministry of Education's Enabling e-Learning and CORE Education's community of practice, edSpace.

A big part of my role, is to help build a sense of community identity in the VLN community groups space. I'm here to help support partnerships within our professional network - which includes brokering relationships within and beyond the VLN.

I'm also here to support community members mentor others online, as we share opinions, ideas, resource and teacher reflections - that will enhance learning opportunities for all our learners. A priority focus will concentrate on conversations and live events that focus on the effective role of e-learning in education. This will happen largely within the Enabling e-Learning community groups. Come join me there!

My educational background spans 28 years - both here and in London. It includes generalist classroom teaching, art specialist, art adviser, ICT adviser, ICT PD national facilitator and recently as an online facilitator.

At home, I am the third child of four. I have a fabulous partner, cheeky son and two gorgeous step-children. Life is pretty good in the sunny BOP. I'm proud to be a published author of five books on art and ICT.

Please feel free to drop me a line or leave me a message at any time. I'd love to hear from you Smile

  • 2018 Census Primary and Intermediate schools' resources

    Stats NZ have produced 2018 Census Support Resources , which include resources for Primary and Intermediate schools in English and te reo Māori. The resources support the online census being held in in February/March. 

    The resources are designed to support students to:

    • see the relevance of the data generated in their own lives
    • talk about data and the census at school and at home.

    Student activities focus on:

    • understanding different people's perspectives about the census using persona cards and engaging in an exercise to convince people of the value of participating in the census
    • finding out about the languages spoken in New Zealand, including Māori language schools (kura kaupapa Māori)
    • comparing the world they are living in now with the world they will live in in 2038
