I am Stephanie Rosestone and I work as a Costumed Teacher and Museum Educator at Sovereign Hill in Ballarat, Australia. I hold a Bachelor of Education (Primary) and worked as both a Primary and Secondary teacher before joining the cultural sector as an Education Officer at the State Library of Victoria.
In my current role I deliver two-day immersive role-play experiences for upper primary students, where we recreate school life on the goldfields in the 1850s.
I am an advocate of immersive, real and fun learning experiences. I believe in the great importance of cultural organisations and their ability in inspire, engage and educate our community. I see the online environment as a bountiful opportunity for involving learners of all ages in real and meaningful opportunities for developing new ideas, knowledge and partnerships.
