About Me
A three year trained Diploma of Teaching Primary I updated my qualifications in 1997-1998 at Victoria University with a Degree ( Computers in Education).There I began using Adobe Pagemill for Web Design. I have spent the past 22 years in Visual Arts specialist positions and have a passion for Visual Arts. My second passion is ICT so I was excited when I discovered blogging mid way through 2008. I set up a Visual Arts blog http://www.tlpsart.edublogs.org. Besides my family, friends and Rotary International, social networking, genealogy, travel and photography are my other interests.

Thank you Yvonne, It only took me 2 years to notice your welcome post.

Canterbury is beautiful, even after the earthquakes and the Pike River disaster where 2 of my students were killed.

What is the value to you of Classroom? I am now a bit curious but is it still vibrant and active?

Hi Evonne,
Thanks for the lovely comments about my blog- indeed what a small world it is! I actualy live in Bendigo :)

Goodluck on th epositive return to school - I realised only Monday that this is my last week of freedom (and also my last week to get my room ready!!!!!!) I will therefore spend every day this week at school.
I'm really excited about this year though as I have set up a link with a school in the UK and we will be teaching them about Australia. Great things are going to happen this year, I can just feel it :)

Hope you have a great year too.

Hi Yvonne - I'm happy to meet you -- my mum sure knows a lot of diverse and interesting people. Re Rotary -- they already provide our kids with scholarships and fund a trip for 1 student to a tech thing in another province every year. They also have just given us a grant for $5000 worth of equipment. I have a feeling that asking for funding to send 2 teachers Australia might be a bit too much.

What I'd like to see is a group of schools getting together. We could do a day or an evening about tools for several interested teachers from each -- even better if they'd also each bring a student so they could play together -- and then we could visit each school and do something there for their staff's as well if they' like us to. I also had an idea of doing a day for student teachers and their classroom sponsor teachers together -- an interesting blend of 'new' and 'old' school, but that would mean involving a university. A conference would be great, but it's hard to find lists of them as your country is big like Canada.

I correspond with a number of people (esp. in another Ning called 25 tools about how to get reluctant teachers involved in technology, but one of your own continent's teachers has had what I think is a superb idea. She puts little posters up at the photocopy machine!! Here's the link to her website: http://mrsleung.edublogs.org/. She's also in Classroom 2.0 at: http://www.classroom20.com/profile/Riss.

Now I'm joining the world to watch Obama.

Thank You! Yes, it is humid here but I LOVE IT! I have lived in Florida most of my life so the heat and humidity doesn't bother me very much. I've been making myself familiar with Classroom 2.0 and I've already found several resources that I want to pass on to my coworkers.

Morning Yvonne - the My heritage stuff is free http://www.myheritage.com/ and can download the software and build your tree offline and then upload it to the site. Its very neat and the detail you can put in is great.
I'm in Adelaide and I work for edna, so we have been back since the 2nd of Jan. It's not too busy yet though ~ It will get hectic soon though when everyone goes back!
All the best with your PD - please do share what you learn with the rest of us :)

Hi Yvonne - sure can :)

Yes I like to go searching for new cool tools for educators, and the genealogy has become quite an obsession recently. There are some great tools out there at the moment. Have you seen My Heritage yet? The tree builder is pretty good and you can collaborate with others.
