Juliette Bentley has taught in Queensland since 1989. She has contributed to several English textbooks for Jacaranda Wiley and Pearson Publishing houses, as well as to Business and Geography texts. Her passion is in helping students find their authorial voice and unleashing their creativity both inside and outside the classroom, using digital applications to engage students and provide authentic audiences both locally and internationally. She completed her Masters in 2014 and is now a doctoral candidate at Sydney University. She considers herself a digital bowerbird, picking through applications and plucking the most intuitive, productive, pedagogically effective and user-friendly tools which she then shares with colleagues in ways that can be immediately applied in the classroom. She is an Adobe Education Leader and presents practical professional development workshops both nationally and internationally. She attended the Asia-Europe Foundation ClassNet Conference in Helsinki as a panellist and seeks to help teachers make connections between digital applications, the curriculum and real-world contexts.
