WA Education Innovation Showcase 2019 Keynote Address

Dear colleagues,

Thank you all for making me feel so welcome and appreciated today. It was an absolute pleasure to speak to you. As promised, below are the links to the research papers I cited in my keynote. And below those, the YouTube videos of my TEDx talk, the ABC 7.30 Report story about Ian Stuart at Ithaca Creek State School (Brisbane), a video of Year 1 and 2 kids learning how to write chemical formulas at Eagleby State School (Brisbane), a brilliant video about introducing atomic theory into the primary curriculum from Bangkok Patana School in Thailand plus a little highlights reel from my visit there.

Exciting times in education. . . see you tomorrow for even more science!
