Learning. Teaching. Sharing.
Innovative Educator and Leader
I am passionate about education, student choice and agency and educational technologies and the possibilities for student learning and engagement. I have a drive to share with other teachers new and different ways they can support their students to improve learning outcomes. I am also an Apple Distinguished Educator, Microsoft Innovative Educator, Adobe Creative Educator and Seesaw Certified Educator, so it's clear to say that I love to enrich education with technology.
I am a Primary School trained educator with experience teaching from Prep to Year 9 and am the Head of ELearning and Resources Innovation at a large independent K-12 College in Melbourne, Australia. I have experience leading the College Learning Management System (LMS), supporting teachers with technology use and links to pedagogy, supporting the Director of Learning with continuous reporting and staff development, leading the College library team, leading curriculum development for Digital Technologies (P-9) as well as teach Year 7,8 and 9 Digital Technologies electives.
I enjoy creating content to share with teachers and students and have done this through my YouTube channel and by creating The PonderingDan Podcast.
