Brendan Robertson–WINNER–2019 Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education – Technology & Innovation
One of my favourite kind of ideas of
Brendan I think as a tinkerer he just absolutely loves to tinker.
One of his things is he will try absolutely anything he can to get at the aspect of
learning that you want to get at. I grab technologies I look at them I play with
them I see what they can do and then I look at curriculum, how can i leverage
this bit of technology to create a better learning situation for a student? We sometimes miss that playfulness in education and that’s what they’re super
engaged with with with Brendan when he comes into classroom. Innovation is what can I do that’s different that will leverage this piece of technology that
make learning better. I like the relationship piece where you have time
to work with somebody and then help them move forward in in their lives and their
abilities that is really rewarding if you give them something that they can
engage with that they can understand that they feel success, they inspire you
to do that again.
