Hello hello! I'm Alex.


My own story involves a transition from maths-anxious to maths-passionate.


That transformation started on a visit into a school where maths was treated and experienced very differently to anything I'd seen before.

I've specialised in maths education since.

Broad Mission

I've long been working to transform the typical learning experience to better activate and embed...

Autonomy, Creativity, Relevance
Local and Global Citizenship.

What I've learned most recently is....

Better understanding PLAY,
and leveraging PLAY, is key.
What I do:

I conduct education research, development and consulting in the areas listed above.  

I also collaborate with outstanding educators on projects that help to: 

  • demonstrate learning through play and playful means - the what, why and how

  • transform damaging perceptions about learning (especially about learning maths)

  • reach a healthy balance of 'maths play' at school and in life
