Award for Rising Digital Technologies Educator

Technology – St Peter's Girls' School

Digital Technologies teacher Monique Green has been awarded the EdTech SA Leading Light Award. It recognises those within the education community who provide inspiration to others in supporting the subject of IT and the use of ICT.

Monique is passionate about engaging and inspiring girls in technology. Through a varied curriculum including programming, driverless cars, drone technology, business intelligence and 3D printing, she helps students understand how technology can change the world. As a member of ‘Her Tech Path’, a community of women working in IT who share this passion, she has partnered with Exposé to develop a unit of work for Senior School students that focuses on how data can be used to solve business problems. Once this program has been trialled at our School, we will be making it available to other schools to use.

Another project Monique has been working on follows on from our recent success in the 2017 Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero challenge. On 8 March 2018, Year 6 and 7 students from Saints Girls and other local schools will be participating in a day of interactive tech experiences. The purpose of this event is to launch the 2018 Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero challenge on International Women’s Day.

Congratulations Monique on your award!
