Projects

There are three main projects that I have been involved in while working at the University of Newcastle. You can find out more about each of these by clicking the Project Details button on each of the items below.

Coding in Stage 3

2016 - 2020

I developed and ran a sustained professional learning program for primary school teachers, as part of my PhD study's data collection. My PhD project involved measuring the program's impact on participating teachers' coding knowledge, confidence about teaching coding, and plans for integrating coding across the curriculum.

Literacy Apps

2014 - 2016

I worked with a team of educators and engineers to develop the iOS versions of the Apostrophe Power and Sentence Hero mobile learning apps. I also applied Serious Games Analytics to data collected through the Apostrophe Power app to gain understanding about how players interacted with the app.

Coding and STEM 4 Schools

2013 - 2019

From 2013 to 2019, I worked with a team of educators and engineers to prepare resources for and co-ordinate a variety of professional learning programs for upskilling teachers for the Digital Technologies curriculum.
