Hi, I'm Steve Collis,
Director of Innovation at Sydney Centre for Innovation in Learning
This is where I think out loud.
At Sydney Centre for Innovation in Learning I work with schools to find and implement a vision for post-industrial-model schooling.
Body of Work - Professional
A simple taxonomy of 4 'frames', designed to identify elements teaching practice and make them susceptible to innovation.
eTwinning facility born in 2005 allowing collaboration between students from multiple schools. Over 80 projects, 4,000 students and 15 countries.
Course designed to nurture capacity to innovate in any walk of life, available worldwide via videoconferencing.
Email protocol for rapid, scaled deployment in schools. Derived from Getting Things Done, it has been successfully operational at my school since 2011. It does not aim to cure email drag, but to score early 'easy wins' and maintain them.
Collaboration with language teachers to publish ideas and experiences with a PBL approach to language learning. Watch this space 2014.
Fun stuff I've done and want to share!
