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.
I had all good intentions of spending lots of time on my blog over the summer and getting together some useful posts but alas it didn’t eventuate… What is more exciting is that I am part of the Australia E-Series group that is working with Steve Hargadon from The Learning Revolution Crew to organise an Australia time zone based edtech conference. This is a fantastic opportunity for Australia to showcase some of our talented educators from all educational sectors… from early childhood to university and adult education.
- The conference has broken up the topics into strands which include:
- Educator 3.0* eLearning/ Blended learning/ LMS* Networking
- Collaborative learning / learning theory / pedagogy
- Use of technology in the classroom/learning environment
- PLEs / PLNs/PLCs
So far we have a number of presenters signed up be we are looking for more presenters and participants. Share the flyer below with your networks.
