I am currently working as a Whole School Learning Technology Coach in Jakarta Indonesia where I work to support teachers and students in developing their knowledge of technology use. As a teacher with over 20 years experience of working with technology I have lived and worked in South East Asia (Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia) for much of this time, leading, managing and supporting schools through their IT development.
In my current role I support staff in their use of IT in the classroom through training, modelling and the planning of innovative activities to enhance the learning for students. I work with students across the entire school encouraging their inquisitive ability to learn and create using the technology which is ubiquitous in their lives.
With technology woven into every part of our daily lives we should be committed to ensure our students are responsible world citizens who learn about, and work with current and emerging technologies that shape the world in which we live.
As a teacher I believe it is essential to embrace today’s technologies to enhance and extend learning (in and out of the classroom) and prepare our students with the essential skills and social attributes required of digital learners in an ever evolving technological world.
