Andrew is currently working on innovative, technologically advanced and creative ways to incorporate Digital Technologies into everyday lessons is the future of Australian education. Join Andrew in an eye-opening session about NAPLAN online. 
Andrew believes that schools are using code to experiment with art and music, to improve spelling skills and to foster critical thinking and problem-solving skills – and has therefore created The Digital Technologies Hub to include up-to-date learning resources and activities that will equip students and teachers with the skills and capabilities they need to flourish in the digital world. It includes an abundance of best practice content that is easy to navigate and implement. 
Andrew has strategic leadership in the education, training and not-for-profit sectors. Previously Andrew has been the CEO of the Australian Council for Private Education and Training and Vice President (Engagement) at Swinburne University.
