He lives in Bali in Indonesia. He has taught at all levels of education both in Australia and overseas and has worked with government departments in Australia and the Middle East. At present, he works as a freelance consultant, specialising in teacher training in the implementation of technology into large education systems globally.
He is a past president of ICTEV and served on the ACCE Board from 2005 until 2008, including a year as treasurer, and then from 2010 to 2014 as President. In 2005 he was presented with the ACCE's Australian leader of the year in Educational Technology and in 2010 was made a Fellow of the Council. He is a past member of the ISTE's (International Society for Technology in Education) Board, is an ISTE Ambassador and wears a Making IT Happen jacket on appropriate occasions. Along with Helen Padgett, Tony was the facilitator of the sister affiliates initiative between Australia/New Zealand and the United States in 2006.
Tony has spent much of his teaching life working with technology, advocating for better resources, and challenging much of the educational status quo in relation to information and communication technology. He believes that passionate advocacy, excellent information, and clear goals and objectives are essential when dealing with system and government authorities.
He lists his passions as spending quality time with his adult daughters, educational technology pedagogy, strategic planning/policy development, travel and snow skiing. (usually in that order!)
