Mark was chosen as the ACEL Australian Travelling Scholar for 2008. Mark is also a director of Dataview; a software development company working on creating 21st C learning environments. His recently released books include “Whatever: The Revolution of School v2.0” and “Whatever Next!: The Global, Conceptual Curriculum” released in Nov 08. These are available for download or purchase from Mark’s notes and resources are available online at and

The theme for Mark’s talks is on the future of education and its changing purpose. He is currently developing a series of texts around the theme of “Whatever” and the disengagement of learners and the new requirements 21st century is placing on teaching and learning practices. The texts focus on how a 21st century school, educator and learner will function in a world where knowledge is increasing exponentially and how the accompanying paradigm shift will overwhelm us unless we purposefully and strategically plan for it and drive it rather than it driving us.

Having heard Mark present to a group of schools earlier this year and last year to a group of teacher leaders, I can't recommend him highly enough. His work with the New Zealand education system is brilliant and show how schools can evolve to be meaningful places for our students.
