Reflect on your last 24 hours. How many of those hours did you spend in engaged conversation and how many did you spend online or on some form of technology? 

Have you ever suffered from “Phantom Vibration Syndrome” when you’re sure your phone is ringing on silent but it’s not. 

Australians (and people everywhere) are spending more time online than anything else. Technology has absolutely changed the world for the better, but I believe we all need t...

This article was written by Tegan, one of our fabulous Expand Education Coaches 

As an Expand Education coach, and soon to be Masters of Secondary Teaching graduate, it is vital that I understand how students learn.

Three things I have learned that are fundamental in facilitating learning are;

1. Empowering students by helping them understand how to learn can change the way they view learning. If they understand how to take control and responsibility...

The latest higher education rankings are out today and Australia has 6 universities in the top 100 globally. 

There are so many post-secondary options and it's important that students are informed and know which university specialises in what. It is worth visiting universities in high school so that students get a feel for different universities and what they may offer an individual student. It's very inspiring and motivating for the senior years i...

Just in case you haven't seen this TED talk from 2013 it's worth a watch. Working with students every day I've seen first hand that this is true. Attitude is everything and perseverance is vital for classroom and life success.

Another recent article citing Carol Dweck's work on attitude being more important than intelligence is here.

Returning to Australia after attending and presenting at the Building Learning Communities EdTech conference in Boston, USA I've never been more happy to be working in education.

The Economist's The future of learning edition last month was yet another reminder that technology has the potential to transform education but what matters is how edtech is used. It discusses the best way technology can help students is through bespoke instruction.

For exa...

Amy on what she does ...and it's not much like the picture above.

I'm a lawyer at the United Nations. Right now I work in the UN peacekeeping mission in Liberia in West Africa (UNMIL) and provide advice on any of the Mission’s legal issues. The mission is comprised of UN peacekeepers from national militaries and police forces combined with civilian staff from over 100 countries. My daily work varies from cases involving property law, maritime borde...

Holidays are a wonderful time for students to take a break, have fun, socialise (offline!) and enjoy sport and creative activities. They are also a great time to get ahead. 

1. Read, read, read. Encourage reading a novel for fun over the holidays or even 2 or 3 if your child is a fast reader. With technology usage reducing the ability of students to focus this is a great way to bring back focus and have true "time out"! They could even visit t...

My biggest take away from this TEDX talk was the young mans obvious passion for skiing.  He clearly has a zest for life which is absolutely tied to his passion.

The challenge for many teenagers who are struggling academically and more broadly is the fact they lack a passion, or even an interest.

We need to ensure all our young students have the opportunity to try as many diverse activities as possible so that something eventual...

As mothers to young children and in our roles as a GP and teacher we constantly ask ourselves “how can we help our children thrive?”

When it comes to our role as parents we must not only set early limitations on technology use but importantly role model healthy technology habits ourselves. 

Rules regarding technology are important as we know young people are more likely to engage in negative behaviours online if there are no rules for technology use...
