Innovative world-leading research and strong engagement with industry has helped Monash University secure funding in the latest Australian Research Council (ARC) grants for Linkage Projects.
Social media has become a significant part of many teachers’ professional lives. But Neil Selwyn says that the benefits are mixed - see why.
"One of the most successful early-childhood systems in the world – Sweden – has also shown that girls are rarely seen in the block area. It’s as though it’s a “no-go zone for girls," writes Monash Professor Marilyn Fleer in the Lens.
She plans to #changeit.
Did you know we have a podcast? It's run by Neil Selwyn, and casts a wide net over all things educational research.
In this episode he talks to Professor Jane Kenway, one of Australia's leading sociologists in education.
Today was #HarmonyDay, and together we made butterflies and wrote messages as part of an art installation, our Kaleidoscope of Kindness.
It was a message from all of us at the Faculty of Education to show our muslim staff and students our support.
Isn't it beautiful?
Happy news: our research project investigating the way maths is learned by 5-8 year-olds received an Australian Research Council grant yesterday. We will be partnering with the Catholic Education Dioceses of Parramatta, in NSW.
It builds on work we have already been doing with teachers to trial the effectiveness of a new style of teaching mathematics using challenging tasks.
And a big part of the project will be to produce resources, all based on research and tested by teachers.
Check out this video with St. Anthony's Primary School, Alphington to see how it works in practice.

Laureate Professor Marilyn Fleer is spear-heading Australia's largest study into play-based education. And for her, the journey started from a tiny community called Narrikup, in Western Australia.
The research is investigating the best ways to support our next generation of thinkers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
It is part of a $3.2 million ARC Laureate Fellowship, the first ever in early childhood education.
