Speaker Bio
Hi my name's Chris,

I'm fascinated in the ways technology can enable learning and how learning design can positively impact the lives of people.

I work to support the development of:

1) skills and dispositions to serve lifelong learners,
2) relationships that support individual and group growth; and
3) learning design that's agile enough to cater for the demands of societal and physical environments.

I began primary teaching in 2005. Over the course of my 11-years in schools I had taught Kindergarten to year 6, led then supported the design of professional learning for staff, trained to become a mathematics specialist teacher which supported my leadership role as Numeracy - Coordinator, completed my Google Certified Educator and Trainer certifications, begun my Masters of Education (Knowledge Networks and Digital Innovation) and now supporting the digital technologies agenda for 80 schools in the Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta.

BTW I love music/songwriting!
