Chris Betcher

Educator

A long time ago, before the World Wide Web was invented, Chris Betcher was a high school art teacher. At the time, he made interesting things out of paint and clay and he enjoyed helping his students learn how to do the same. When the Web came along it ignited a whole new passion for making things, this time out of 0s and 1s. Funnily enough, he enjoyed helping his students learn in this new digital landscape even more than the old analog one.

Since that time, Chris has taught in a diverse range of educational settings. He still has the same passion for helping others discover their world through the use of digital media and the social web.

He currently works as a Program Manager with the Google for Education team based in Google's Sydney office.
