My name is Debra Hicks and I am the eLearning Coach for Monmia and St Albans East Primary Schools.
Most of my career has been spent teaching in primary schools around the western suburbs of Melbourne. I have taught all grade levels, had many specialist roles, had numerous leadership roles, offered professional learning activities across the state, worked for the regional office and the centre and am now back in schools working with teachers to create an environment of innovative learning for contemporary classrooms.
The wonderful part of this role is it’s full of possibilities; it’s all about helping teachers prepare themselves and their students for the ever-changing, online world. I see eLearning as using digital devices, applications and online tools to ensure deeper thinking and broader representations of learning in all curriculum areas.
One day it will just be called Learning!
