Laura Bain, E-learning coordinator & digital technologies teacher, The Springfield Anglican College
In the past year, Laura Bain has gone from emerging leader to industry expert in the field of education technology. Her work with digital technologies and STEM in the primary years of education has gained attention around Australia and internationally. Believing that age is not a barrier when it comes to achieving amazing things with technology, Bain has expanded the school’s 1:1 program to commence in Year 3. She combined this with a self-created technology training program that aims to equip students with the skills to be responsible, smart and safe users of technology. Bain, who is recognised as a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert, has commenced the study of her master of education with a goal to make an even greater impact on the education system in the future.
