Bruce Dixon - Co-Founder ModernLearners.com, Change.School
Bruce Dixon has spent the bulk of his career developing programs that assist governments to make effective use of technology across their education sector. His strategic work has enabled governments to better manage large scale personal technology deployments, and ensure outcomes that drive both school improvement and ultimately transformation. His experience across more than 40 countries has led much of the current thinking around personal technology use in school, reflective of his role as a pioneer of 1 to 1 in the early ‘90’s. While his ability to build big-picture strategy has been at the forefront of much of his work of the past decade, he also allocates a deliberate amount of his time to sharing his thinking through keynotes and workshops which support his advocacy for bolder and more ambitious thinking around what universal access to technology now makes possible for young people. In his own time, Bruce can be found open water swimming, or surfing at Byron Bay. @bruceadixon
