About

My name is Anthony Speranza and I am an educator at St. Mark’s Primary School in Dingley, Victoria, Australia. I started a class blog at www.stmarks56.global2.vic.edu.au.

I am also an educational consultant, speaker, and trainer.

I will use this blog to discuss issues around innovative practice, teaching and learning, and technology integration. Why is this blog called ReconfigurEd? Read about it here.

As well as this blog, you can find me on Twitter and Google+.

A little bit more about myself:

Teaching history: 2017 is my eleventh year of teaching.

Teaching position: Currently I am the ICT Teaching & Learning Leader at St. Mark’s. I lead the school in using ICT purposefully with a sound pedagogical approach. I work with teachers and students in our open plan learning areas.

Programs I have instigated: In my time at St. Mark’s I have been involved in many technological programs that have been introduced to students. These have ranged from digital story telling, movie making, to animation. Two major projects that I have been involved in include our Kidsnews program (a live 10 minute newscast produced by students) and our 1:1 laptop program in our Senior years. More recently, our school has implemented Google gSuite for Education and Chromebooks.

Conferences: I have enjoyed presenting at a few conferences over the recent years including EdTechTeam Summits, the ICTEV, ACCE and ISTE. I have also enjoyed giving guest lectures at Australian Catholic University each year.

Achievements: I have written for Educational Technologies Solutions magazine, the ICTEV Journal publication, the Australian Educational Leader and Education Matters Magazine. In 2014 I was awarded the ICT Educator of the year from Digital Learning & Teaching Victoria.

Professional Development: I enjoy coaching in ICT for colleagues at my school, as well as consulting with other schools and organisations to lead professional development. I have been accredited as an authorised Google for Education Certified Trainer and Innovator.

Other Interests:  I enjoy music, the outdoors, cooking, and keeping fit.
