Learning Technology Coordinator and Science/STEM teacher at St Mary’s High School, Gateshead, Newcastle. St Mary’s is a Year 7 -10 Catholic School that will be expanding to Stage 6 in 2018. He has been teaching at the school since 1994 and recently initiated iSTEM classes as a Stage 5 elective course. The implementation of this course has been extremely well supported by the Hunter ME Program. The aim of the course is to increase real-life problem solving, creativity, innovation and collaborative skills with a focus on increasing the uptake of higher order Science/Mathematics based subjects in later studies. The program has proven to be extremely popular and he is extremely proud of the outcomes being achieved. Inspired by the ‘Maker Guru’, Gary Stager, it has transformed his pedagogical approach to teaching. As a keen advocate for STEM education he has been fortunate to present at Dioceses throughout NSW and workshop how MaKey MaKey can transform learning in the classroom at the ELH ‘Changerous Ideas’ conference in Melbourne.
