Meeting Julia Gillard MP for Education

Julia Gillard MP and me!

This is a photo taken on April 16th at the Dimboola Memorial Secondary College. DMSC put on a great 2 day conference to highlight their work with the Leading Schools Fund with the focus on technology in the classroom. Dimboola teachers were passionate about the use of their Interactive Whiteboards and had them set up in just about every classroom.

Minisiter Julia Gillard was there to acknowledge their wonderful work and was available for questions, chat and photos after her speech.

I have also posted to and added some ways that the school used their IWBs.

Hey Helen you do move in big circles. Do you like the work you do? Guess it gives you lots of opportunities for learning. Did you know that Jess and I are sharing a new role of Innovations and Learning officers (or something like that. I am too tired to go back and check the exact title) for the Barwon SW region so that is rather exciting for us.

Hi Anne,
No, it just kind of happened! Certainly don't hang out with ministers on a regular basis! I think you and Jess are the perfect choice to be the Innovation contact people for the region. You do great things with your students.
I love my job, but I do miss not having my own class. However, I enjoy seeing other teachers trying things out.
