Two reports, co-authored by Tim Patston, the School's Coordinator of Creativity and Innovation, and Peter Evans-Greenwood, Fellow at Deloitte's Centre for the Edge, have been completed and they are complemented by a podcast conversation with Peter and Tim and a number of short promo videos.

 

In her foreword for "Digital agency and the skills gap: To code or not to code" (PDF 1.5MB), Rebecca Cody, Principal, discusses the role of institutions like GGS in preparing the next generation for this relatively new digital world and closing the skills gap. 

"At Geelong Grammar School, our educational philosophy and evolution motivates fresh perspective. Through the lenses of Creative Education, Positive Education and Adventure Education, we strive to enrich human and digital interactions, as well as critical and creative collaborations," Rebecca said. "We are grateful that our critical, creative and collaborative relationship with Deloitte Centre for the Edge supports us in intersecting the science of learning with the art of teaching to develop discerning digital citizens."
