Name: Chris Wise
Bio: Chris is a parent, teacher and podcaster from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. He has built his career in the pursuit of new pedagogies, inclusive technologies and a continual reflection on best practices. As a foundation member of one of Queensland’s leading schools, Peregian Springs State School, Chris has piloted a number of key initiatives including one to one device learning, and the school’s flagship event, SpringX – a celebration of student learning through making.
This story of peer to peer learning offers a rare glimpse into Chris’ truly unique classroom. You might think you’ve wandered into a classroom of a Montessori school, however this wonderful land of learning-by-doing exist as an island-of-refuge within the well conformed, regulated and some might say corrupted sea of public school classrooms.
