"Hi Anne, I sat in one of your sessions at ICTEV on Saturday and then lo and behold you turn up on the ISTE Ning - what a shame we didn't meet as it looks like we'll be seeing each other in San Diego. "
"Mary-Lou has had a varied background, starting with 15 years in the travel industry to becoming one of Australia's internet pioneers when she started one of Australia's first 100% online retail businesses in 1998. From there she moved into education and now holds a Masters in eBusiness and Communication and a Diploma in Vocational Education and Training from Swinburne University. After completing her studies Ms O’Brien was quickly employed at Swinburne University in the position of eLearning Leader for the School of Business, and Course Convenor of three Graduate Certificate courses: Small Business Management, Quality Management and Supply Chain Management. She also lectured part time in subjects such as eMarketing, eCommerce, Change Management and eBusiness Systems and Applications.
In 2009 she was appointed to the position of Director of eLearning, at Melbourne Girls Grammar, where she has been responsible for the strategic planning around technology from the Early Learning Centre through to Year 12. With her expertise in Flexible Delivery and the capacity to trial, implement and integrate new technologies in business, she has bought valuable skills to the K-12 education sector. At MGGS she has already transformed learning by introducing online environments that will extend our students’ capacity to learn independently and collaboratively and her planning for the future of education offers an exciting glimpse into the future".
Hi Mary-Lou it is a small world. I would have loved to have met you on Saturday, but will certainly do so, for the ball game and any other social activities that are organised. I am really looking forward to ISTE. Have you been before? If so, do you have any tips for getting the best out of the conference?
