I am a high school History teacher in Australia and have created this site to help History students and teachers.
The History Skills website was launched in 2014 using the website creation platform, Jimdo.com.
Originally called History Skills Online, the name was shortened in 2017.
History Skills was a contributing author on the Ancient Rome senior Ancient History textbook by the History Teachers' Association of Victoria. Inspect it now by clicking this link.
I work for the British Broadcasting Corporation as a historical fact-checker across three of their publications: BBC History Magazine, BBC World Histories, and HistoryExtra.com.

I am co-hosting Teach Meet events in Toowoomba in conjunction with the University of Southern Queensland.

I held a session on digitising the modern classroom, giving students the power to 'choose their own lesson'. The core of my presentation can be read in the following blog post.
