Paul Stuart

Paul has spent much of his working life in the classroom, both secondary and tertiary—most recently—actually some time ago now, as a senior lecturer at AUT. His fascination with technology and how it can enhance learning and communication led to the creation of KiwiSchools.

These days, Paul’s focus is on steering “the waka” and guiding school leaders through the minefield of LwDT choices. He’s also passionate about seeing teachers’ eyes light up when they “get” teaching and learning in the cloud!
