Jake is an advocate of authentic, student-centred education. He believes that all students deserve the opportunity to engage with the curriculum through purposeful, real-world tasks. Moreover, he argues that students need opportunities to learn from industry professionals in order to produce effective products or services for members of both local and global communities. Leveraging contemporary pedagogies, such as Project-Based Learning, Jake co-constructs inter-disciplinary programmes and experiences that develop future work skills and inspires students to be curious, courageous, resilient global citizens. Jake joins Ruyton Girls’ School after a range of leadership and teaching experiences, including both learning and teaching at the international pioneer school High Tech High in California, and a recent consultancy with the NSW Department of Education Futures Learning Unit. Jake has partnered with organisations such as the Innovation Unit to design a national Case For Change and has provided professional development to hundreds of schools and curriculum associations internationally and across Australia.
