As the education technologist at Wooranna Park Primary School, Kieran Nolan has helped establish the school as a world leader in education technology and future thinking. Students have developed everything from virtual reality games and custom-built computers to fully functioning Cisco networks. They have built their own 3D printed computer lab using Raspberry Pi, created their own cryptocurrency, voted on hardware and software for the school’s open-source STEAM centre, built their own full nodes for various blockchains, and created an educational game that teaches people how to mine Bitcoin. Students have even created an international Minecraft environment to learn about hardware wallets and financial literacy. These efforts led Wooranna Park Primary School to recently become only the third school outside of the United States to be filmed by the George Lucas Foundation.
