My name is Tomaz Lasic, the author of “Human”.
I’m a father of two, a husband to one and only, a friend to many, PhD candidate, (ex) high school teacher, moodler, blogger, tweeter, water polo player and coach, runner … with an endless ‘to do’ list, (un)helpfully tall, fascinated by and bad at many things.
These days I spend most of my time working on my PhD project at Murdoch University (Perth, WA), looking at at how a heightened sense of fear and anxiety about NAPLAN (a high-stakes national literacy and numeracy testing) among Year 3 students, their parents and their teachers promotes fearful ways of seeing themselves and ways of acting upon it. I am interested in seeing how fear, an isolating, divisive and pervasive force has, and continues to, affect and alter many long present and expected sets of human interactions in the Australian educational landscape
Over the years, and in no particular order, I have completed a Masters Degree (Research) in Education, taught humanities in secondary schools (with mostly at-risk youth) for 12 years, played and coached water polo from junior to elite leves for more than12 years, worked as Education Researcher at Moodle Headquarters for a while and so on.
I am eternally interested in in “why things happen (in education) the way they do?” I tinker with ICT, particularly with Moodle, Twitter and Web2.0.
I live with family near Fremantle in Western Australia.
