Blake Seufert, ICT Manager, McKinnon Secondary College

It’s an exciting time to be in education. Spending over 10 years working, consulting, training and building products for schools I’ve never been more convinced that thoughtful design paired with great technology is the best opportunity we have for rapidly improving education. I have been fortunate to work across many facets of Edtech, from consulting with Edtech companies like Google, Microsoft, etc to working with over 100 schools and school groups across Australia. I have lead the way with G Suite adoption in Australian schools becoming Australia's First Google Reference school along with developing systems like the confidence framework for improvements of EdTech.
