Rhys Cassidy, Vice President of ATOM QLD and a Film, Media and English Teacher at Runcorn State High School presented at a special Garage Gamer edition of Pecha Kucha Brisbane in March 2013.

His topic, Games+Design+Systems = Reflection drew on his experiences in co-developing the game design toolkit Gamestar Mechanic as a means of teaching design thinking and engaging students through game design.

Rhys’ passion for student and teacher media and digital literacy prompted the introduction of iPads into media subjects at his school. He has recently completed a social issues documentary project with Kyabra Community Association and led a cross-school media project, mentoring students and teachers through the process of creating a promotional video for their school. Rhys is a member of Metropolitan Region Aspiring Leaders Program, a District Panellist for Film, Television and New Media and a member of the QSA Arts LARC.
