Barb is currently Senior Project Officer with the Australian Government Quality Teacher Program in South Australia. She has also worked as Discovery School Project Manager, Assistant Principal (Curriculum), Quality Teacher Project Consultant for two districts and as a teacher and innovation leader in primary and secondary schools.
Barb’s work centres around the development of learning culture, with teams, sites and districts, that better enable mindful use of learning technologies within a multi-literacies framework.
She is the originator of the term “PowerPointLessness’, often referred to by Jamie McKenzie. She uses this term to describe the tendency toward the use of technologies for razzle-dazzle rather than substance, and the ways in which software applications can become drivers of the curriculum.
