On the topic of Global Connections!
Stuart Kelly (@stuartkellynz) is a Deputy Principal at Aorere College in Auckland, New Zealand. Stuart has a Masters in Education Management (Hons) from University of Auckland and is a Google Certified Trainer. A firm believer in the notion of #oneteam and #oneclassroom, he is constantly trialing new pedagogical practices with his highly enthusiastic students. Stuart does everything possible to ensure that student choice and agency is ever-present in his learning spaces. As head of Aorere Digital, his school’s digital transformation programme, he has experienced first hand the dramatic ability of edtech to open up classrooms and open up futures for the students of Aorere College and beyond. Committed to ensuring that Aorere College students have learning resources and options as advanced as any students globally, Stuart is quite happy to be seen as a veritable #edtech “nutty professor.” Originally an English teacher and still prominent in the classroom with a committed fail-forward pedagogy, Stuart is also highly active in global edtech, speaking and presenting across Australasia and through his role as founder of #digitaledchat, a leading #edtech chat in New Zealand. Stuart loves nothing better than sharing with educators from around the world.
