About Me
I'm particularly interested in social software and the role technology can play in engaging the digital natives we have in our schools. Having led K-7 Curriculum based ICT at Paraburdoo Primary School and 3 years of CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) ESL in a Japanese High School, I now work as a Senior Curriculum Officer in the Curriculum Through ICT section of the West Australian Department of Education. Specifically I am interested in the benefits ICT can provide in an educational setting. Having managed an Apple lab and a Windows lab (albeit in Japanese) I have experienced first hand the differences between the major operating systems. Despite the arguments for and against both platforms I personally believe user engagement, connectivism and critical literacy are central to the efficacy of curriculum ICT integration. In classrooms, infrastructure simplicity and access to integrated content production wins handsdown. I also run a couple of educational group blogs called Digital Chalkie and AusMacEd as a means to link with fellow educators interested in empowering their students through the use of ICTs.

Yes web2.0 at an enterprise level needs this kind of discussion - although here in Perth, Moodle has not been given the recognition it deserves on a local level. The national deployment of EdNA with Moodle at it's core however is doing some marvellous things in realising connectivism for teachers.

I'm impressed a network so strong has already formed around the potential of web2.0 in the classroom.

What is the classroom though and where will it be in 5 years?
