I joined the Western Academy of Beijing in August 2008 and am currently the HS eLearning Facilitator/Technology Integrator and the teacher of record for the Capstone Programme, a self-directed pathway for students that have a particular passion.
I have been a leader in educational technology for a large number years in six international schools including UNIS Hanoi, Bangkok Patana School as well as schools in Qatar and Turkey. I have taught a range of subjects in a number of curriculum frameworks, the most recent being IBDP Information Technology in a Global Society and both MYP Individuals & Societies and MYP Design.
My key area of expertise is organising and presenting educational technology-focused PD and I have had a number of leadership roles in the wider international community. I am the the executive director of Learning2, an non-for-profit organisation that runs educational conferences worldwide. I am one of the founding partners in Eduro Learning, an educational technology consultancy set up to develop & support collaborative, purposeful and technology-rich learning opportunities that create meaningful and sustainable educational change. Previously I have been the lead coordinator on Greater China Apple Distinguished Educator (ADE) Advisory board as well as a IBDP senior examiner and paper author.
I am studying again through Charles Sturt University (NSW) and hope to complete the Master of Education (Knowledge Networks and Digital Innovation) by November 2017! My reflective blog can be found here.
