Hi I am Mark Kent and I am an Assistant Principal at the Distance Education Centre Victoria. I began my teaching career in 1987 as a primary school teacher and pretty much enjoyed every grade level and specialist area I’ve taught. Now I work across a P – 12 College and one of my leadership roles is the development of Skoolaborate as a Virtual Learning Environment. I am thrilled to be able to connect students with really interesting and engaging learning opportunities via a Virtual World and to provide opportunities for new communities to develop using technology.
Coming to NPAC and working with the Bamaga community is a career highlight for me and I hope we can extend this partnership to include students from other remote areas.
