Digital Gippsland

My journey with technology  is  almost a decade old . During this time I have added my input as a collaborative colleague  on a number of innovative educational programs.

During the last decade I have been lucky enough to have worked with some very clever and passionate people that inspired me and taught me a new world of skills.  I have always seen the internet as something that allows everyone to discover life long learning with ease.  This journey first started  with the help of a great manager, mentor and colleague who help me develop skills that would take me to the moon and back .

The first time I started to learn about technology as a tool in the classroom was when I  developed with assistance of my mentor manager and colleague an online accredited safe food handling course.  To be beamed out via Wimba  live across the far east wilderness areas of East Gippsland.  The success of this made me look further into how technology could assist me in the classroom. That is when the penny dropped and I started integrating  technology with the help of  classroom blogs and e-portfolios as a accredited compliant outcome in my students training and learning.

Since then I was hooked on technology and its benefit. I have been fortunate to work on a number of projects and pathways that have taken me in so many positive directions. On community projects with the aim of connecting isolated communities or helping teachers managers and coordinators to come to terms with this new digital world and embrace an e-capability in their organizations and teaching.

My roles over the years have been diverse and taught me about project management, networking, creating the odd resource or delivering webinars or accredited or non accredited online courses all focusing on adult learners from 14- 95

I’m a strong believer of a blended delivery that is why networking suits me.  Although in saying that face to face has changed since I started my journey and can also be online with the many video style communication tools.  Teamed with webinars, online resources forums and even phone service support.

How quickly technology and the access to education for all is advancing is amazing and I’m loving, watch it all happen.

I am also grateful be part of it all still.
