前言
一个鼓舞人心的消息 — 我们将在今年的新南威尔士州2018澳大利亚国庆日演讲活动中见到一个亚裔澳大利亚人的面孔。新南威尔士州来自自由党的州长Gladys Berejiklian宣布,新南威尔士州的高级中学数学教师-网络红人Eddie Woo将在今年的新南威尔士州澳洲国庆日演讲活动中发表讲话。我认为,新州州长做出了一个正确的选择,她真是个聪明、头脑清晰的、维护多元文化的澳大利亚人!新州长Berejiklian说,Cherrybrook科技高中教师的创新和动态方法改变了学生对数学的看法。

新州州长Berejiklian说,通过Eddie Woo与年轻人独特的接触方法,他帮助无数学生克服了对数学的恐惧,培养了他们对学习的热情。

澳大利亚人Eddie Woo 
Eddie对教学的热情和奉献精神,以及他的个人故事都是令人鼓舞的。

(Eddie Woo)

作为一名高中数学老师,Eddie有着十多年的工作经验,而他的网络明星生涯开始得很简单,最初他为了一个由于重病无法来上学的学生,拍摄并上传了一节课到网络上与其分享。

从那以后,他的Wootube视频频道逐渐建立起了全球影响,积累了超过10万的订阅者,拥有超过900万的浏览量,同时帮助澳大利亚以及世界各地正在苦苦挣扎的学生,建立和培养起了他们在数学方面的自信和能力。

Eddie Woo表示,作为教师和教学重要性的倡导发声人,他很荣幸有这个难得的机会和平台来帮助解决澳大利亚的问题。

“我知道对于许多学生,以及对于澳大利亚而言,都能从中受益,因为我们打破了这样一种误解,认为数学是一个难以接近和困难的学科。”

新南威尔士州澳洲国庆日演讲活动是新州澳洲国庆日委员会举办的一年一度的盛事,这是一场对思想、观点多样性和言论自由的庆祝活动,在回顾我们重大历史的同时,思辨性地对我们的未来提出了疑问。

 

澳大利亚国庆日
Eddie Woo 将于1月23日下午12:30 -1:30在悉尼音乐学院发表新南威尔士州2018澳大利亚国庆日的演讲。澳大利亚国庆日是对澳大利亚人身份的重要庆祝,应该被视为具有归属感的一天,不管它是在什么时候举行的,不论澳大利亚的政府是以什么形式存在,或者我们的国旗在过去、现在或将来都是什么样子,国庆日都应受到重视。

如果我们澳大利亚人希望在全世界受到尊重,我们必须确保我们彼此尊重。如果我们是澳大利亚人,那么任何情况下,都是由我们创造的澳大利亚社会来定义我们是谁。我希望,这是一个拥抱变革,但尊重过去的社会,并期待着以公平和平等的方式改善我们的未来。

重要的是要知道我们是谁!
这不仅对我们的身份很重要,而且对我们在社会发展上、文化和自然经济方面的进步也起到重要的作用。因为经济上的成功,将能够帮助我们在开明、富有同理心和可持续的公平道路上取得更多发展。2018年,将会是对澳大利亚政府形式进行不断讨论的一年,我们还将讨将澳大利亚变成一个共和国的可能性,包括这可能带来的所有积极或者消极的影响。像过去的一年一样,人们将会很仔细地探讨这个问题。特别探讨我们澳大利亚人对澳大利亚国家元首的认同感。

去年,我们看到了这个看似简单的命题所带来的各种困惑,议员和参议员们被质疑他们的真实身份。这一话题的核心问题围绕在,澳大利亚宪法对效忠于澳大利亚的定义,它取消了拥有其他国籍的澳大利亚公民参政资格,甚至声称他们的其他国籍利益可能会削弱他们对澳大利亚的忠诚度。

澳大利亚共和国?
澳大利亚变成共和国?作为澳大利亚人,我们有幸能够参与到这种类型的辩论当中,但对我们来说是更加至关重要的是继续细化地定义我们是谁,以及我们身份背后的含义,特别是在经济方面,国家和国籍的概念现在带有很多权利,但也存在许多潜在需要背负的东西。在这场辩论中,我们必须确保我们足够强大,能够正面所有好的、坏的和丑陋的现象和声音。如果我们不能在方面取得进展,我们的国家将会受到地缘政治力量的挑战。我们必须共同努力,把澳大利亚定义为一个强大的民族国家,将公民团结起来,为我们所有人共同的未来而奋斗。这就是为什么澳大利亚日不仅仅是一个日期或用来聚会的日子,而是一个我们反思、辩论问题和庆祝我们的澳大利亚身份的日子!

这似乎与你们中的一些人有些矛盾,但重要的是在辩论过程中求同存异,在多样性中找到力量,为所有澳大利亚人创造一个更好的未来。

the Republic of Australia?

It is inspiring that we will, at last, have an Asian-Australian face giving this year’s NSW Australia Day Address. Internationally renowned high school mathematics teacher and internet sensation Eddie Woo will deliver this year’s NSW Australia Day Address, NSW Liberal Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced. I say the NSW Premier has made the right choice, a smart, articulate multicultural Australian!NSW Premier Berejiklian said the Cherrybrook Technology High School teacher’s innovative and dynamic methods have transformed the way students relate to mathematics.

Through his unique ability to engage with young people, Eddie Woo has helped countless students to overcome a fear of mathematics and nurture a love of learning, said NSW Premier Berejiklian.

Eddie Woo that’s Who!

Eddie’s passion and dedication to teaching and his personal story is truly inspiring.

With more than a decade’s experience working as a high school mathematics teacher, Eddie’s rise to internet stardom began simply enough when he filmed and uploaded a classroom lesson to share with a student too ill to attend school.

Since then, he has built a global profile with his Wootube video channel, amassing more than 100,000 subscribers and upwards of nine million views, while helping struggling students across Australia and around the world to develop confidence and competence in mathematics.

As an advocate for teachers and the importance of teaching, I’m humbled to have this incredible opportunity and platform to address Australia, said Eddie Woo.

“I know how much students, and Australia, can benefit when we break the misconception that mathematics is an inaccessible and difficult subject.”

An annual event hosted by the Australia Day Council of NSW, the NSW Australia Day Address is a celebration of thought, diversity of opinion and freedom of speech, and raises questions about our future while reflecting on our significant past.

 

The Australian Day!

Eddie Woo will deliver the 2018 NSW Australia Day Address at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music on 23 January, 12:30 pm -1:30 pm.

Australia Day is a significant celebration of Australia’s identity and should be seen as a binding day, irrespective of the date it is held on, the form of Government Australia has or what our Flag looks like at any given time, past, present or future.

If we Australian’s want to be respected across the world we have to make sure we respect each other. If we are Australian’s, it is the Australian society we created that defines us at any given moment. It is a society that embraces change but respects the past for what it was and looks forward to improving on what we have in a fair and equitable way with respect for each other into the future, I would hope.

 

Important to know who we are, it is!

This is not just important for our identity but also our progress, socially, culturally and naturally economically as well. As it is our economic success that gives us the capital both intellectually and in monetary terms to progress in an enlightened, compassionate but also sustainably fairway.

This year 2018 will be a year where we are likely to debate our Australian form of Government and will be looking at the possibility of becoming the Australian Republic with all its implied positives and negatives. This debate, as in the past will be one about detail. Our Australian sense of identity with an Australian head of state.

Last year we saw how confusing that simple proposition can become, with MP’s and Senators challenged as to their true identity. Central to the theme was the Australian Constitutions definition of allegiance to Australia only, disqualifying Australians with other citizenships and even claims to a benefit that could compromise their allegiance to Australia.

 

The Australian Republic debate will revisit many of these issues

We are lucky as Australian’s to be able to indulge in this type of debate but it is essential for us to keep on refining the definition as to who we are and what that means, especially in economic terms as the concept of nation-state and nationality now carries with is so many entitlements but also potential liabilities. In this debate, we must make sure we are strong enough to look at the good, bad and ugly. If we fail to make progress in that realm our nationhood as young as it is may be challenged by geopolitical forces.

We must all contribute to define Australia as a strong nation-state with the resolve of its citizens to stand together and fight for a future we all belong to together. This is why Australia Day is not just a date or party but an institution of ourselves that allows us to reflect, debate and celebrate our Australian identity!

This may seem contradictory to some of you, but it is important to have disagreements in debate without getting a divorce, find strength in diversity and create a better if not perfect future for all of us Australians.
