Geoff Augutis - Round 1, 2019 Champion

Best practice digital solutions in education

Located on the Bundaberg/Fraser Coast

Geoff Augutis uses his considerable digital skills to empower and educate the wider Bundaberg community to become more innovative and invest in their futures through technology.

He regularly volunteers his time to provide consulting services to schools and training organisations about how to best implement technology in their school to reach learning outcomes. This includes the use of traditional computing products and today’s more interactive products such as touch screens and robotics. It is Geoff’s goal to give both staff and students advice and show them how to avoid poor or outdated technology that may impede teaching and learning.

He also works closely with key vendors including Apple, Microsoft and Samsung to deliver solutions that cater specifically to the individual client and their current and future circumstances.

Geoff was an active participant in the Digital Skills for all Queenslanders roadshow in 2017, advocating for the Bundaberg region. He also took part in the Fraser Coast Libraries Young Innovations Symposium, an event aimed at encouraging children to develop their entrepreneurial skills and learn more about digital technology. Additionally, he was a participant in the Crush Festival Queensland’s Mini Makerspace, providing children and families with an opportunity to participate in STEAM activities for free.

Geoff volunteers with the CSIRO STEM Professionals in Schools program, which facilitates partnerships between schools and industry to bring real STEM into the classroom. He also works in partnership with Apple and other large digital companies to facilitate workshops free of charge.

Geoff’s activities:

Providing monthly one-on-one leadership mentoring to education professionals on how to implement a successful technology program in their facility. Programs range from device choice to complex requirements such as assisting in the design of their coding classes. He also increases the focus on STEM, with 3D printing, interactivity, drones and robotics.

Coding workshops held 2-4 times per year at local schools or libraries, with content ranging from coding basics to expert level programs. Often held in partnership with large technology organisations.


Geoff is nominated by Kepnock State School
