My name is Joanne Villis and I am classroom teacher who has who has 12 years experience with interactive whiteboards/LCD TVs and have facilitated the integration of technology in education at my current school, St Aloysius College. I have experience working with Reception to Year 2 students with iPads, Year 3 to year 12 students using Microsoft Surface Pros and a strong understanding of coding and its applications for game development.
I believe, that current teachers need to provide an interactive and engaging curriculum to cater for today’s digital learners. As teachers, we need to look at our students, seek their advice and ask ourselves, how can we deliver an education to meet their needs?
