I am passionate about teaching and strive to be creative and innovative to keep students engaged and challenged. I am enthusiastic about teaching with technology, not just using it as a substitution, but to use it to make real advances in education. I enjoy helping and inspiring other teachers to embrace technology by showing them what I do in the classroom and collaborating to help them integrate it into their own teaching.
My main passion with technology is with iPads, and as I have managed these myself, I understand the management issues and how solutions need to be found to deal with network restrictions, and sharing and submitting of work. This can be particularly problematic with music and composition.
In addition to specialising in Music, I also present courses on using the iPad in all CAPA subjects (Music, Art and Drama), cross-curricular apps that can be used in all subject areas and also beginner coding and programming for K-6 students with an introduction to robotics. I demonstrate how to integrate these apps and resources into lesson for creative teaching and learning.
