As Senior Project Manager at The Learning Federation, Curriculum Corporation Jennifer has responsibility for managing the Museum and Education Digital Exchange Pilot. This project has at it’s core, the aim of sharing museum digitised collections with teachers and students.
Jennifer works within The Learning Federation project at Curriculum Corporation in Melbourne Australia, which is a unique and pioneering project that employs emerging technologies to produce world-class online curriculum content to encourage student learning and support teachers in Australian and New Zealand schools.
The Le@rning Federation develops and distributes quality assured digital curriculum content in a range of national priority curriculum areas through partnerships with multimedia developers and cultural organisations. Schools across Australia and New Zealand have free access to this content. Highly valued by teachers the digital content supply is flexible and adaptable to meet the needs of a diverse range of students including Indigenous students. These resources have been procured to support the implementation of curriculums in all jurisdictions and will be mapped to the national curriculum. All copyright fees have been paid up front meaning there are no further charges by collection agencies.
Creating infrastructure for content, setting standards and specifications, developing quality assurance processes, and improving the capacity of schools to deliver the content have also been major focuses of our work.
Jennifer has a background in learning technologies and is passionate about the potential for information communication technologies to engage audiences, share knowledge and facilitate access to cultural collections.
Prior to joining The Learning Federation, Jennifer has mostly worked with cultural organisations both in Australia and overseas. Recently she was the founding executive director of an innovative Melbourne based Design Foundation and was previously the manager of the Zoo Education Business unit at Zoos Victoria.
