My name is Mel Davenport. I am currently completing my Bachelor of Education 4th Year Upgrade. While I am studying I am working as a temp teacher in a wonderful little school on the outskirts of Sydney. My studies have provided me with many opportunities to reflect on my teaching practices and look at research that provides direction for future practices. I have a particular interest in the effective use of technology within the classroom and flexible classrooms that offer students choices about where and how they learn.
