Jackie Child has been teaching primary aged students in different countries for over 40 years. She is passionate about how children learn through constructivist pedagogy. In her blog http://tinkeringchild.com/ she describes the many benefits of ‘making’ to learn. She is an enthusiastic tinkerer who fixes and builds things constantly, whether it’s at school, home or in her garden. Jackie has held many positions in both administration and teaching including Deputy Principal, Head of Sport and Head of Art and Display. She has been a Teacher Librarian at St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School and is now Junior School Technologies Coordinator.
