Writing, speaking and consulting on school technology and library issues. As an educator and information professional I continue to be fascinated by emerging technologies, innovation with Web 2.0, and what this all means for schools and school libraries.
In 2006, this blog was created specifically to help me engage in reflection, learning and social networking, and to help inform my work as Education Consultant, Library & Web 2.0, with Catholic Education, in a Diocese with 80 schools K-12 in the Western region of Sydney, Australia.
In 2008 I took up a new challenge as Head of Library and Information Services at St Joseph’s College, Hunters Hill. A school with a great tradition and long history, ‘Joeys’ has a keen eye on the future learning needs of its day boys and boarders. It’s was my role to reshape virtual and physical learning services for this vibrant school community.
In 2011 moved to Charles Sturt University as a Lecturer in the School of Information Studies in the Faculty of Education. This is an exciting new dimension to my own learning and to being able to support others in their learning. I am also involved in research and professional partnerships in school education and university programs in Australia and overseas.
In 2012 I became the Course Director for the Teacher Librarianship degree, and in 2013 Course Director for all the graduate and postgraduate Master’s degree programs in the School of Information Studies at Charles Sturt University. I am lucky to be have these continuing opportunities to make a difference!
I am constantly on the lookout for new challenges. Let me know if you have something interesting for me to help you with!
