I have been an educator for over 30 years. Initially a primary school teacher, then teacher librarian I have taught in both primary and secondary schools in the public and private sector in Western Australia. During my career I have been a curriculum consultant, online course developer, library consultant and ICT Project Manager for the Western Australian Education Department. I developed the Learning to Learn Program at Aquinas College and am currently co-Head of iCentre at Iona Presentation College where I have developed the Inspired Learning at Iona website and an ICT Passport supporting the ICT General Capabilties in the Australian Curriculum. In recent years I was a Project Officer at Curtin University as part of the TTF (Teaching Teachers for the Future project). I have also lectured in Learning Technologies and helped create an online scientific inquiry unit (Inquiring About the World) as part of the new Bachelor of Education Course at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia. I have developed a range websites with a focus on information literacy and study skills, namely Studyvibe, The Research Safari and The Knowledge Compass.
