A Profile of Success on the Apple Website ... now that's cool

To someone who uses a MAC, to be featured on the Apple website for your work is truly heady stuff, so when in 2007 Apple Australia published a profile on their website called “Breaking with tradition – profiles in success: The University of Adelaide”, it was truly personally satisfying. This profile has been archived and is available here. This article was all about Educational Podcasting at conferences. 

This pioneering work in podcasting was the core of my application to be an Apple Distinguished Educator (ADE), which was awarded in 2009.  Being an ADE has given me access to a creative community of educators throughout the world, who have as their main KPI … “making cool stuff”.  Joking aside, it gives me access to some of the most innovative use of technology for learning available, and has been a source of great ideas for the last two years.
