As well as this blog and my class blog, I write Tech Tools for Teachers. This is a collaborative effort with my colleagues, Matt Limb and Simon Collier. Each fortnight we review an online tool and provide step-by-step instructions on its use.
In January of this year we ran a professional development day called Technify Your Teaching in 2012.
We are now organising Technify Your Teaching in 2013. This one day PD will be held on Thursday 24th January at Leopold Primary School near Geelong in Victoria.
Kelly Jordan and I will be running sessions on educational blogging, while Matt and Simon will be conducting workshops on Google tools, YouTube, Evernote, iDevices and web 2.0 tools.
If you are interested in signing up for the PD or finding out more, visit the TeachinGeneratioNow blog.
There are limited places so get in quickly if you’d like to attend!
In June I travelled to the USA to present at the ISTE conference with my long time blogging buddy, Linda Yollis. Read more about it here.

About our Session: Flattening Classroom Walls with Educational Blogging
In early 2009, Linda came across my class blog. One comment has lead to years of learning and collaboration through blogging and global projects.
In our presentation, we will share our story and also offer you
- insights into the benefits of educational blogging and global collaboration
- a summary of how our students have worked together on blogging and global projects
- an overview of how we use a variety of technologies in our collaboration
- ideas on integrating blogging and projects into the curriculum
- tips for getting started on your own journey with global collaboration
Please spread the word and join us if you can!
