Tony Shillitoe, Educator, Concordia College

Tony’s passion for education extends across forty years, working in multiple disciplines within State, Independent and International education systems. While his roots lie in teaching English, Tony has had leadership roles in university post-graduate education courses, TAFE professional writing, International Baccalaureate Middle Years teacher training, and secondary and ELC-12 schools. He is a published writer of fantasy and young adult novels.

Tony’s educational engagement with technology began in 1982 using tech in class to support writing and performance. From 2010, Tony managed an ICT Department through the one-to-one era, and now is responsible for building staff digital competence across an ELC-12 environment. His current key interests include bridging the digital divide between teachers and students, exploring the relevance of digital tools in schools, and developing measurable digital competencies for staff and students.
