Ten Reasons to Attend the Global Education Conference 2010

Posted on November 11, 2010 at 1:34pm 0 Comments

As I write this post, there are 10 days to the start of this amazing and almost incredulous event. The number ten in English is more commonly written as 10 and some significance could be read into this. The number 10 is made up of two digits, and could be interpreted as :- the 0 represents our globe and the number 1 represents our membership of one global community. As…

Through a series of grants and funding, my school, Hawkesdale P12 College has purchased a set of 16 acer aspire ones, 1gb ram, 120gb rom for mobile use by staff and students. The increasing use of web2.0 tools and technological access has placed huge demand on our computer lab and pod. At any one time there could be a combination of students from up to 4 classes in the computer lab, when space is available. Staff try to get timetabled into… Continue

Amazing connections from classroom20

Posted on November 14, 2008 at 4:00pm 2 Comments

Tonight I was on the computer late at night, trying to get organized for my two days in Melbourne, when a foreign language popped up on my screen, from my skype window. However, the text was in English and my first name was used. I quickly realised that this must be my newly acquired friend from classroom20 who was looking for schools to videoconference with. It was Ekaterina Zhdanova from Russia. How exciting is that!

She had just bought a… Continue

Best tool for publishing student work....

Posted on August 24, 2008 at 2:29am 5 Comments

Blogging, blogging, blogging..

So, was my reply to a query on classroom2.0 recently about the best tool for online student publishing. The lively discussion has centred primarily around blogs, wikis and nings but I would like to justify in this post, the use of blogging as the number 1 tool.

A student blog is a far more personal interactive website than any of the others. It may be used for journal entries and for publishing school work across many subject areas. It… Continue

hoped you enjoyed Romanians hospitality

Hi Anne, I tried for the first time in years to change my picture. Worked like a charm.  My question now, though, is I retired from teaching and would like to cancel my account. I have searched the web site and cannot find that procedure. Could you help me out? Thanks. Linda

Hello Anne! I think your edublog challenge is drawing many more members here. It certainly has brought me back. I always check for events, but haven't connected or blogged here lately. I always send people here to sign-up, and your challenge has encouraged me to add to the site, rather than just check it out. Have a great day.

Thanks so much, Anne. Again, I appreciate the tips on how to get started in such a "big place."
Kind regards,

Thank you alot for the welcome.
I am sure my joining Classroom 2.0 is going to be a fruitful choice for me as a teacher of English. I am so interested in integrating ICT into teaching, and I hope I will soon find the way to create an e-classroom where students make use of the new ICT gadgets to maximaize and facilitate their learning. It's my hope, too, to make my teaching so easy, fruitful, and exiciting. Thank you.
