About me

I joined the Western Academy of Beijing in August 2008 and am currently based in the High School as the 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 over twenty years in six international schools including UNIS Hanoi (K-12 IT Coordinator), Bangkok Patana School (Head of Department) as well as leadership roles in schools in Qatar and Turkey. Additionally 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. I have experience in Queensland as a Grade 2 and 5 class teacher both with Catholic Education and Education Queensland.

I have had a number of leadership roles in the wider international community. Currently, 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’m a lifelong learner and very curious about the future direction of education. I aim to complete my Master of Education (Knowledge Networks and Digital Innovation) from Charles Sturt University (NSW) this November.  My reflective blog can be found here.

  1. Hi Madeleine
    Compliments of the Festive Season to you!

    I was hoping you would be able to assist. We need to share our experiences at the Learning2Africa conference with our colleagues. I was hoping to do a similar activity to the one you did with us involving the SAMR model. Would you mind sharing the rubric used and some of the examples we matched to the rubric? It would be greatly appreciated, and will definitely be cited 🙂

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.’

    PS. Meeting my brother and sister for the first time went incredibly well 😉

    Regards
    Melissa
