We are delighted to announce Monique Green, Matt Jessett, Gary Pascoe and Kelly Rivett as the 2017 Leading Light Award recipients. These inspirational people go above and beyond in their teaching practice, to ensure that their work has a significant positive impact on the use of technology in education.
As a Year 4/5 Teacher at Vale Park Primary School, Kelly integrates purposeful ICTs into her classroom learning program to improve student outcomes.
Kelly applies the ‘blended learning’ approach where students use Chromebooks to collaborate with peers in Google Classroom, learning in online and offline environments. Her students have developed the confidence in using devices to access learning online, directing their investigations to ensure shared learning. Kelly also supports her colleagues by sharing her knowledge and skills which improves outcomes for the whole school.
An enthusiastic and dedicated member of the EdTechSA Management Committee, Kelly assists with promoting EdTechSA events on social media and planning for the 2017 and 2018 state conferences. Kelly recently became the first Kagan Cooperative Learning trainer in South Australia, having completed a rigorous certification process in the United States. In 2016-17, Kelly was selected to become an official GoNoodle Ambassador.
