These skills/requirements would benefit all teachers. There is no niche audience.

Format Description

We will create a classroom environment where the participant will experience things from the perspective of a student, and then in the second half of the presentation, we will flip it around and I will guide the participant on creating and delivering the work to their “class” (for trial purposes this will be just me).


This course contributes to 5.0 professional development hours.

I am a secondary high school teacher in my seventh year of teaching. I am currently teaching Stage 4 and 5 Geography at East Hills Girls Technology High School, and have taught Stage 6 Economics and Ancient History previously at Canterbury Boys' High School

In my teaching experience thus far I have embraced new technologies for my lesson planning, delivery, reporting and assessment. I host these lessons and activities on my webpage:

I also have devoted considerable time and energy to a tutorial webpage for teachers at:

Finally, I have led a number of professional development days for teachers in our local teaching area and within the school in service of improving teacher knowledge of ICTs.

Teaching is my passion.
