Dr. Nicky Mohan

Dr. Nicky Mohan is a global citizen by choice. Born and raised in South Africa, she now shares her time between New Zealand and Canada. Nicky has been a classroom teacher, a school and university leader, an instructional designer, a business sector manager, a corporate trainer, an author, and an international speaker. After working in the public education sector for more than 20 years in both South Africa and New Zealand, she moved to the private sector, joining an educational service provider as a Learning and Development Manager. Her principle responsibility was for the design and delivery of professional development courses and resource materials.

In 2008, she moved to the University of Waikato (New Zealand) as a Team Leader for Numeracy developers. In that role, she was responsible for delivery and assessment of the National Certificate in Adult Literacy Education (NCALE), Train the Trainer workshops, and the development of online materials for numeracy (Avallain), as well as post NCALE workshops for graduates of the NCALE (Vocational) program). During this time, she worked extensively with trainers throughout New Zealand from various PTO’s, ITO’s, and PolyTechs.

Dr. Mohan then worked as the Director of Curriculum for the 21st Century Fluency Group (Canada). She led a team of international writers in designing instructional units that embedded the 21st Century fluency skills to develop real-world, just-in-time teaching and learning (JiTTL) experiences that were relevant to both teachers and students. Nicky is currently the Managing Partner of the InfoSavvy Group (Canada), and Director and co-founder of SpringBoard21 (USA), both international educational consulting firms.
Nicky was recently appointed as a member of UNESCO’s Teacher Task Force core committee, focusing on the role of AI in Education. During the last ten years, she has made hundreds of presentations in more than 20 countries.
Nicky has co-written four books, including Making School a Game Worth Playing, Game-on: Using Digital Games for 21st Century Teaching, Learning & Assessment, the award-winning Reinventing Learning For the Always-on Generation, and her latest Leadeshift 2020: Reinventing Our Schools For Extraordinary and Uncertain Times and Literacy Is Still Not Enough, have just been released.
Being a global citizen, Nicky wants to make a difference where it matters most - and that starts with education. Her mission is to help teachers from different settings and working conditions look beyond their surface differences, to discover what they have in common: a relentless drive to improve learning for all students - and in doing so, to prepare them for their future and not society’s past. Most of all, she wants our conversations as educators to shift from, “Why that won’t work here,” to, "Learn, adapt, share and grow together."
