Lecturer in public vocational education/training in rural Western Australia where I teach literacy and numeracy entirely online using Elluminate LMS and any other e-tools that might engage my often disengaged and disadvantaged students. I also mentor and provide professional development in e-stuff for my colleagues. I have a global PLN that enables me to keep up with world issues and events in education.
