I have an interest in the integration of various forms of ICT in student learning experiences. I am involved in a variety of projects investigating the power of games-based learning in Literacy and Numeracy. We use Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation, XBOX360 and online games in our learning.
I was awarded the VTCU Outstanding Primary Teacher Award at the 2011 Department of Education and Early Childhood Development Excellence Awards. As part of this award I attended conferences and visited schools in the UK to explore game-based learning on an international level.
This blog will chronicle my journey as I research the benefits of games and other technologies in learning.
