It's difficult for me to believe, on occasions, that it was back in 2010 when I started dabbling in getting students to contact experts outside of the school to support their own inquiry learning. Fast forward to 2013, and from Castlemaine via Maryborough I find myself at Crusoe College.
When innovating, the structures of a secondary school can make things more difficult than at a…Continue

India is an incredible place to travel to. Several years ago, my wife and I spent a month travelling through the well-beaten path of Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan. The Mughal architecture is astounding, the sheer rhythm of life on the streets is almost overwhelming, and the food is, quite simply, glorious. While it's not an easy place to travel, it is certainly one of the most memorable places you could ever visit.
So it was with considerable excitement…Continue

A great question was asked in the Presenters Group by Kristina Stoney on Promoting Your Session for the Global Education conference. An audience or even any participants at all, can never be guaranteed as there is no need to pre-book. Often the most popular global times have two other simultaneous sessions against it. The sessions…Continue

I developed a collaborative wiki as a place where teachers and students can share…Continue

Recently as a staff we were asked to read the book Out of Our Minds by Sir Ken Robinson. I have to say the book supported the idea of keeping creativity in school, but also ignited the inspiration I needed to start to think more out of the box. I need to develop a shape for myself and how it will define me. Do I want to inspire others by my actions or try to be innovated in creating something so amazing for my…Continue
