Preparing Children for Exponential Change!
Change has always been a constant and a goal of education has always been to prepare our children for change in the future. The problem is change is happening at exponential rates.
· How do we prepare children for a future that we can only dream about.
· What we need are problem finders who can answer ungoogleable questions.
· How do we move past traditional concepts of education so that we can have self-monitoring, self-regulating, self-motivated learners?

Stephen has presented at numerous conferences around New Zealand and Australia on future focussed learning and the use of technologies as an everyday learning tool.
In 2015 he gave a TEDx Talk around the drivers for the inclusion of coding in schools but from a perspective of provocation based learning. In his time at Taupaki he has championed BYOB (Browser), ePortfolios and the rise of Maker Technologies in everyday learning. He is a founding member of MakeClubNZ. When he is not at school he can be found on the side of a basketball court managing and coaching school and representative teams and if there is time curled up in front of the fire with reading a good… iPad
