Testimonials

The Future Makers resources allow me to put a different lens over the students’ learning. And in doing so, students are still learning the key content but in a far more engaging, hands-on way. This lens also means that the unit is of increased relevance to their lives.
Rosie, Taroom P-10 State School

I loved the high tech, authentic delivery of this PD, using a variety of engaging topics related to student prior knowledge.
Robyn, Warwick Central State School

Appreciated that the workshop did not take me away from my face to face classes nor did I have to travel to attend. Always a bonus when teaching in rural areas. Best part was support resources that complimented the workshop and can be used immediately in the classroom. These resources and teaching ideas are engaging and user friendly. Community of Inquiry is helping me refine teaching to student needs.
Leasa, Clinton State School
