    About Dr Mark  Williams

    Mark is a Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at Macquarie University with more than 20 years’ experience in research and teaching and 70+ publications. Mark has studied how we interact with each other, how we learn and how we think. He has studied these questions in average individuals as well as a range of disorders such as autism, prosopagnosia (face blindness), dementia, addiction and eating disorders. Mark was awarded the CJ Martin Fellowship from the National Health and Medical Research Council and the Queen Elisabeth II Fellowship from the Australian Research Council. His work has been highlighted in the media both locally [Catalyst (ABC), Making Australia Happy (ABC), SkyNews] and internationally [The Guardian (UK), New York Times (USA), Economist, New Scientist, Leading Edge, (BBC: UK), Science in Action (BBC; International)]. He is also an editorial board member of several international journals.

     Mark was working as a Research Scientist at MIT in the McGovern Institute for Brain Research (USA) when the first Smartphone was released. He has watched in both fascination and apprehension at the rise of technology in our education systems. In addition to his teaching and research work at Macquarie University, Mark now runs programmes for schools, parents, businesses and individuals to address the many problems that technologies (like smartphones) are creating. Learning outcomes, resilience, curiosity, tolerance and emotional intelligence are all declining whilst stress, anxiety, depression and suicide are rising. Money and technology alone are not the answer to innovative practices in our schools, workplaces and society.

    About Maureen Graves

    Maureen is an attorney representing people with disabilities and their families since 1994, primarily in disputes with school districts and regional centers. Maureen turned to special education law in 1994 when her own young children were diagnosed as having autism.  At the first IEP meeting she ever attended, she was stunned to hear that the “team” planned to document goals but would not explain how teaching would occur.  Ensuring that students have access to validated, effective interventions has been a key focus of Maureen’s practice from the beginning. Reach her at maureenrgraves@gmail.com or via Disability Voters. She is also on LinkedIn:  https://www.linkedin.com/in/maureen-graves/
