Tara first became involved in education through attending Playcentre with her children. This experience led to Tara taking further study in education. Tara's postgraduate research investigated the nature of children's social interactions in a mixed-age setting. Tara has a variety of educational interests including: the rights of children, children's interactions, ICT and 21st century pedagogy. She is currently working for CORE in the most perfect role for her, as it allows her to combine her love of ICT and education.
