    It is with great sadness and surprise that I hear of Paul’s sudden passing.

    As Ian said, Paul has been a stalwart of ECAWA for the over 25-30 years I have been associated with educational computing and his contribution to the field, as an academic, author, practitioner, thinker, mentor and colleague have been profound.
    He was genuinely one of the ‘nice guys’ and I count myself lucky to have been fortunate to work with him on various projects during this period.
    His passing will surely be missed by many…
    Condolences to his family for whom this must have been unexpected.
    I look forward though, to the opportunity to pay my respects in person once the funeral arrangements are announced.
    Given Paul’s contribution and the level of esteem in which he is held, whatever the venue, I’m sure it will be full to overflowing…
    Rest In Peace Paul.
    Your efforts have left the world and future generations of children so much better off.
    Thankyou.

  • Goodbye Paul,

    I was very shocked to hear of Paul’s passing, I’d spoken to him in recent weeks and months at a series of STEM and EdTech events.

    Beyond these conference encounters, I’d been a colleague of Paul’s at the ECU School of Education between 1998 and 2008, as well as serving on various committees and organising groups over the past two decades.

    Paul always struck me as a very composed and considered educator who was passionate about fostering the very best in education. I’m sure there were times when my loud, brash and sometimes confrontational approaches to network issues, access to new technologies and experimental digital pedagogies left Paul wondering what sort of crazed drama teacher I might be. Nonetheless we somehow connected as colleagues and were always moving closely in the same academic and professional circles.

    While I will miss Paul’s face in the halls of the buildings at ECU Mount Lawley, I am sure that his legacy and influence will be felt for many years to come as all those he worked with and those he taught carry his knowledge and insights forward to those who pass through the university and schools beyond.

  • I have worked with Paul for many years and have always been impressed by his kind and gentle approach to others.

    I valued Pauls’ wisdom and insight about teaching and ICT. Yet when we spoke Paul always came back to his passion which was his family. Paul always spoke so highly about his wife, his family and his children. As a family you were his source of joy. When I spoke to Paul about travelling, he told me how much he loved being at home with you all.

    You have given him so much happiness.

    Goodbye Paul Newhouse,

    I was so sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. I have spoken with him last term in a meeting and also at other events this year.
    Paul made many great contributions to the educational computing and helped it move forward in numerous ways. His work for education will not soon be forgotten.
    My sincere condolences to his family, he will be greatly missed and everyone is saddened by his death. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time.

    With sincere sympathy,

    Vale Paul.
    I was greatly saddened to hear of Paul’s passing, and it came as a complete shock to me. His expertise in the area of Educational Technology has inspired me for many years. He worked tirelessly to promote what we now recognise as being essential skills for the future. I will greatly miss his insight, wisdom and extensive knowledge as well as his kind and gentle manner.
    My deepest sympathy to his family.

  • Deepest sympathies to the family and loved ones. So saddened to hear that we have lost an icon, a giant in the field of educational technologies in WA. His contribution to education has shaped state and national strategies and his work has had an impact on all of us. Paul managed to stay humble through all his quiet achievements. We grieve at the loss of a great man, a colleague, a mentor, a leader who will continue to influence us for many years to come.

  • I am very shocked to hear this sad news. Paul was my lecturer at uni this last semester.

    In the last 13 weeks he taught myself and other students so many valuable resources and tools we can use in our upcoming careers in teaching.

    I can’t imagine what his family is going through.

    My deepest condolences.

    He was a great teacher and I won’t forget this last semester we spent with him.

    Remember him well from my time as an Academic on the Mt Lawley Campus of Edith Cowan University in the late 1990s
    Deepest sympathy to his family and colleagues

  • Very sad to hear this.

  • My office was right next to Paul for 5 years between 2006-2010 in Mount Lawley campus. He is one of the most unassuming men that I have met; very passionate in his research and teaching, and very generous with his time and energy for his peers, junior staff and students. I have been blessed to have worked and interacted with him all these years.

    My deepest condolences,
    Chirp
