Jason Lane, Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert, Microsoft Australia

Jason has been teaching in independent Catholic schools since 1994. In that time Jason has seen significant shifts in pedagogy based on the evolution of computer labs, 1:1 school managed devices and finally Bring-Your-Own-Device programs. Jason presents regularly for Adobe and Microsoft on the effective implementation and integration of Microsoft Office applications, Adobe Creative Suite software and Augmented Reality experiences. He is passionate about injecting creativity into digital pegagogy approaches, and seeks to bring platforms such as Microsoft and Adobe together in ways that leverage effective learning opportunities. Most recently, Jason has presented the story of Vilanova College’s adoption of Microsoft Teams across the Year 5-12 campus. Villanova College developed a staggered timeline of migration towards Teams and sought to provide teaching staff with the opportunity to “choose their own adoption stream”. This differentiated approach to the College-wide adoption of Teams has made all the difference – giving staff the option to develop at their own rate whilst building support groups and networks within the teaching faculty.

Playful learning is powerful learning as it bypasses student frustrations and incentivizes their willingness to take on new challenges. You don’t need to be a gamer or even very familiar to dive deeply with your students into creative and collaborative lessons across subjects and accessible across for all students.
