The basics

So, apparently there are two other Steve Brophys out there, hence the 3 in his Twitter handle, but this one is (most likely the best teacher of all the Steve’s).

Steve is Director if ICT and eLearning at Ivanhoe Grammar, is the Co-Host of TeachTechPlay and is also Co-Host of the Design and Play podcast. He has his own blog:

He was awarded Outstanding Leader of the year at the 2017 DigiCon. He has written the feature article for this issue of the STEAM Report.

Basically, he is the epitome of “If you want something done, give it to a busy person”.
