Tam has been involved with the VLN community of schools since 2008 and with the VLN Primary schools from its creation. As part of the, then, elearning and channels Teams at the Ministry of Education, Tam has been a member of various teams that worked on the development and operation services intended to support the growth of online learning within NZ . These include the VLN Services, TKI, E-asttle, Ed Leaders, Assessment Online and the ARBs.

He is excited by the ideas and practices of the VLN. These seek to have schools share their expertise and resources in order to expand the learning opportunities of our youth.

Tam has an enduring interest in the use of technology to enhance our ways of learning, working and living in practical, yet meaningful ways. Ways that work.

His quest is to support educators find the right blended learning balance for them, their students and their whanau.
