Biography

I am an Early Childhood trained educator with 17 years teaching experience from pre school to grade 6 (Primary). My passion is for curriculum and program design that is both innovative and play-based. I have led teams in changing practices, in a variety of leadership roles, moving schools towards implementing ‘maker’ modules, gamification of units, integrating technology and 3D printing as well as making learning meaningful through cleverly designed programs that allow student immersion. I have published a range of articles about play-based learning and continue to grow professionally, speaking to and training teachers in Australia. I currently work as a primary school Curriculum Coordinator. www.lianasimpson.weebly.com
