Tinted Glasses (Or How I View The World Through This Blog)
This blog is composed entirely of my own views and re-mixed versions of other people's views. I use this blog as a space for personal reflection and connection and in no way want this to be seen to be representative of the views of my school, employer or future employers. As Australia is a free democracy (the last time I looked) I may feel free to make constructive observations of events and initiatives within my own system. This does not make me a troublemaker or whinger, just someone who believes that open and constructive discussion will help those with the power to make significant decisions on the education community's behalf.
I am deeply commited to the concept of public education in Australia. I am proud and passionate about the fact that public schools in Australia lead the way in innovation, curriculum development, equity, compassion and empathy for their students. I worry when I see outside factors seek to influence and erode the good things my colleagues are doing on a daily basis. What they achieve with the resources they are given is amazing - imagine what could happen if they were supported more!
I am a committed life long learner and love the fact that technology have enabled me to take control of my learning in the most complete way ever. I want more of my colleagues to feel this absolute thirst to go further and further and see what new learning will be offered to me tomorrow via the edublogosphere.
