Sue Isbell

Sue Isbell

Sue Isbell - Head of Department eLearning - Kelvin Grove State College Sue is an experienced Head of Department of nearly 20 years at Kelvin Grove State College, a Prep to Year 12 Independent Public School located 3kms from the Brisbane CBD.Her role is diverse and constantly evolving, with a cross-curriculum and year level focus on digital pedagogy, professional development, and digital tools and systems including the Year 7-12 Bring Your Own Device program. Sue also manages the Middle and Senior Schools Digital Technologies curriculum (including VET qualifications), the Middle Senior Library and reporting.Until recent years, Sue also managed the ICT services and infrastructure program at the College. She is Chair of the Digital Pedagogy and Technology Strategic Committee. The diversity of her role over a long period of time has given Sue a unique insight into all aspects of education in a state school context.With the release of the Digital Technologies national curriculum and more recently the new QCE senior curriculum, Sue has adopted her College Executive Principal’s “raise your gaze” approach in implementation planning. This includes actively seeking opportunities for greater industry (including start-ups) engagement to support students in preparing for their chosen pathways.  In partnering with the Australian Computer Society Queensland branch, and the Gateway to Industry – Manufacturing and Engineering Queensland Program (KGSC is the Engineering hub school), a greater focus has been given to trying to establish a talent pipeline into the ICT industry and ICT roles in other industries. This includes encouraging students to consider industry-based alternatives (e.g, vocational qualifications, micro credentialling, internships and/or industry certification), rather than traditional university pathways which may not guarantee employment on graduation.Sue was successful in obtaining 2018 funding for a Tech Ambassador role to support the implementation of the Technology national curriculum and to establish a P-12 DigiSpace to increase staff and student access to new and emerging digital technologies.A successful EQ International Innovation Subsidy application will see a Pepper and an NAO robot added to the Library DigiSpace. Apart from industry activities, Digital Technology students also have the opportunity to engage with entrepreneurship in the start-up eco-system. Students are supported and encouraged to develop their own interest areas and digital solutions and to join the “student expert” teams which support the BYOX program, the DigiSpace and activities.Sue recently won the national ACS Digital Disruptors Awards, in the ICT Educator of the Year category. Her engagement with industry and the start-up community has enabled her to develop a broad understanding of the challenges each sector faces, and to help to build bridges between the sectors in the different partnerships, programs and activities she facilitates and participates in.Late last year Sue participated in the ACS Queensland branch’s ICT in Education forum, which resulted in the White Paper the current webinar series is based on.
