Hi Irene, that would be great, thanks. I'll look forward to seeing the new site when its up. You might also be interested in the work Adam Brice is doing, if you haven't gotten onto it already. He can be found on this network or on Twitter as well. We have written a book together on Digital Storytelling as part of Curriculum Press' 'Action Stations' series, which also includes a great book by Anne Mirtschin. You can find all the details here: http://www.actionstations.com.au/ I am very interested in building more links between Independent and Government schools, so its great to hear from you. Adam and I had some good conversations with Roger Hawkins, who is the ICT consultant for the Independent Schools of Tasmania, after one of our presentations at a recent conference and discussed running some conferences for some Independent Schools down there. Anyway, keep in touch!
What you' ll write is fine by me. I' ll put creative commons and I'll try to put the in English as soon as possible. I have a 4 month old baby girl and keep family, baby and work in balance is still tough on me. But I'll send you the link asap.
Thank you for the advice on CC.
Hi Ifrene, thoroughly enjoyed the conference - lots of stuff to digest. Now to start employing this in the classroom. I suppose the most important thing I learnt was that teachers need to change their own views about teaching. If we keep teaching the 'traditional' way we're are storing up a lot of trouble for ourselves. These are exciting times, but I'm not sure how many people realise how significant the current cultural changes are going to be.
Hi Irene. I am back at school now and I have posted a blog tonight (I think) on Classroom 2.0. This is all very new to me but I have returned from the conference very inspired and intent on not being left behind. I realised at the conference (and had been asking myself )that there were ways that I could engage my students more. I felt that I got quite a few answers at the conference. Thank you for your suggestion that someone attend the conference from our school.
