I’m Presenting at OZeLive

iampresenting150x150.fw┬áIt’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 ┬áintegrate 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!

OzeLive Edtech Down Under Conference

I’m really excited to be a part of this wonderful opportunity for Australian Educators. We are currently in the midst of preparing this conference and it has been a real experience. A social media campaign, ning platforms and meetings to organise and contact presenters. I’m squeezing this in between organising for the new school year and starting studies for 2014. Yes I’m crazy but I’m excited! I’m going to put together a presentation of my own look at webtools for Inquiry.

 

Cool Tools for Featuring Student Book Reviews

There’s nothing like a book recommendation from a friend. Encourage students to share their opinions by creating a student-driven book review site. Richard Byrne shows you how in the accompanying screencasts.

Ness Crouch‘s insight:

This looks like an interesting site. I’m going to investigate the possibilities for safe use in a primary classroom.

Ness Crouch‘s insight:

Excellent site… though we don;t study pirates I’m sure I’d have some kids that would love to be extended by looking at this!
