Australian elearning pioneer, teacher and entrepreneur. John became an educational computing enthusiast as a young teacher before starting a business as a commercial software publisher at age 29. In that role he produced many award-winning software titles and helped bring Australia's best loved children’s characters to interactive format including The Wiggles, Bananas in Pyjamas, Hi-5, Play School and others. He sold his business in 2007 in order to better enjoy family life with his wife and two young daughters who were approaching school age. Helping out at his daughters’ school re-kindled John’s passion for teaching, and he is once again actively engaged in encouraging teaching colleagues to take advantage of the amazing new opportunities made possible by technology.
