  • Why ‘no’ is a choice Author: Tom Tutton Date posted: 01/09/2015

    Everyday people make choices, big and small, trivial and life-changing. Choices vary from whether or not to eat a double -coated chocolate biscuit, what movie to see, career or study options, and starting or ending relationships.

  • Minecraft, Autism and Education: Thinking Inside the Box Author: Thomas Kuzma Date posted: 12/03/2015

    Hi Readers

    I hope you all have been well, I have been a busy bee. That computer I mentioned in my last blog has had some mishaps, but it's okay now. I went down to Canberra to hang with my cousins and started a new Minecraft world. I can't believe how much I missed this game, the exploring, fighting monsters, building awesome things like houses and bases. I found out recently that Craig Smith was running a workshop on teaching people with autism using minecraft. I was so impressed by his work I just had to let him write a blog about it.
