This is a backup copy of my blog teacher.global2.vic.edu.au hosted on the Victorian State Department of Education and Training’s Edublog’s Campus Site Global 2 in case it is decommissioned some day. It contains my thoughts on technology and its impact on education. It is intended primarily for teachers and parents interested in education, though some posts are also suitable for younger students. The views expressed do not represent those of my employers or clients – they are all my own, unless of course, they also happen to be yours or theirs.
I began my working life as a school teacher at Silverton Primary School in 1977 and became an elearning evangelist. I started an ICT business in 1985, sold my business in July 2007 and moved to the country for a quieter, more relaxed lifestyle with my wife and two young daughters. When my eldest daughter started school I began helping out with ICT at her school. Soon I was helping other schools in the area. Things aren’t so quiet any more – there’s so much happening with technology in schools!
