I’m Presenting at OZeLive
It’s official I’m presenting. As a volunteer I thought it would be a great opportunity to share my knowledge with others around Australian and around the world. The OZeLive Conference will take place form 22-23 February 2014 and it is looking like a fantastic event with a variety of different presenters and topics.
My session is called Web tools for Supporting Inquiry learning. In this one hour session I intend to share a variety of different tools which allow teachers to easily integrate technology into the classroom learning environment without too many issues. I’ve tried to choose tools which are simple to use and help make life easier for teachers who are guiding or supporting student inquiry in the classroom.
There are a variety of tools being presented, like Google Apps, Symbaloo, Thinglink, Pinterest, Story Bird, MindMup and more. See you there!

Yes I’m crazy but I’m excited! I’m going to put together a presentation of my own look at webtools for Inquiry.
