Hi, I’m Greg

As  a member of the Asia Pacific Texthelp team, supporting technology innovation and implementation across the region
I aim to
inspire, lead and coach others to explore the possibilities that exist for ALL via technology
promote literacy and numeracy support solutions for all students
provide workshops and presentations for schools and organisations, and present conference keynotes and sessions

I firmly believe that saying

“we’ve always done it this way around here”

is dangerous!

embrace positive disruption

Help disrupt this dangerous way of thinking and watch the excitement of teachers being re-motivated.

Adding new technologies into the mix is powerful in driving this positive change…….this positive disruption.
I’m committed to embracing positive disruption and exploring the possibilities that exist for ALL students through the use of technology, wherever and however teaching and learning takes place.

Digital Divides – Teaching The Future

Pathways14, Sydney Australia


I have been actively involved in education for over 30 years.

During this time I have worked as a classroom teacher, school executive, consultant, regional manager with the New South Wales Department of Education, Australia and as a technology consultant and coach. As the Educational Technology Manager for Texthelp’s AsiaPac Team, I help to make sure that the over half a million users of Texthelp products across the region get the most out of this technology.

I am device & platform agnostic – I use them all
