Cudgegong Valley Public School (NSW)
Joel Wilson is a firm believer in the need to integrate ICT into today’s education, and as his school’s resident ICT evangelist, he is benefitting the learning and lives of both his students and his staff by showing them its ‘relevance and significance’. Wilson is a technology advocate and a regular ICT user in the classroom, from using interactive whiteboard resources to holding virtual excursions with students and using iPod technology to complement learning in class. He has gone even further with students, initiating computer programming courses that have seen him devote his own lunch times to helping students discover the joy of coding. Wilson also supports and inspires staff across the school by troubleshooting ICT problems and mentoring less confident staff.
