Teachers as Everyday Heroes

You came into teaching to make a difference, and you do! However, the pressure to do more with less makes your role more difficult. The need is great so how do you serve your students without sacrificing your soul?

In Jaz's keynote she will share her powerful personal journey through education and how your smallest actions make the biggest difference. Equally fierce about the importance of getting literacy right and teachers recognising themselves as the #EverydayHeroes they are, Jaz's keynote will leave you fired up and ready to take on the world!

Teaching the i-gen

In this keynote address Dr Kristy Goodwin draws on the latest research from neuroscience, technology and child development disciplines to inform teachers about how today’s learners, the iGen, want and expect to learn. In this engaging address, Dr Kristy, a former early childhood and primary teacher and academic from Macquarie University, researcher and author, shares how much time average Australian kids and teens are spending online and how this digital immersion is shaping their childhood and adolescence. Dr Kristy explains the health, learning and developmental implications of our kids’ and teens’ plugged-in childhoods and adolescence and equips educators with essential information and practical strategies to accommodate the iGen’s learning needs in the classroom. Kristy addresses how screens are impacting students’ attention spans, language, fine and gross motor skills, social development and their learning preferences and how teachers can modify their pedagogy and classrooms to accommodate and compensate for these changes. Participants will learn a host of simple strategies to implement in the classroom to engage and support the iGen.
