Other information

Professional Biography: I have had first hand involvement with the use of computer-based technologies in education since 1980; including extensive involvement with teacher education programs and professional development initiatives focusing on the effective integration of ICT to transform curriculum, teaching and learning in order to meet the needs of 21st century learners. I have extensive experience in the leadership and management of large scale pure and applied research projects specifically investigating the impact of ICT on teaching and learning across state and national education systems and I was integral in the adoption of the TPACK framework in the National Teaching Teachers for the Future (TTF) project (2011-2012) as well as the development of the quantitative measurement tools used to evaluate the impact of the TTF intervention nationally. I have expertise in quantitative methods, especially the design and development of valid and reliable measurement instruments.
