Our learning journey...

How does Thursday 7th 4pm @ Silverstream (South) School sound for a Term 4 session? Dave Young has some inspiring things he would like to share with us. A great opportunity to share success of the year and look ahead to 2014.



Very exciting next e-teach meeting for us all to attend! Tuesday 11 June, 4pm at Milton Primary School. Please don't let the travel put you off - it is our opportunity to visit Tania's school and it is a good distance for Gillian May and Rachel O'Connell! Let's carpool and head to Milton. Tania is currently exploring opportunities for new technology at her school so I wonder if we could bring along some of the toys we have... iPads, iPad minis, iPods, tablets, androids, netbooks.... anything that we could talk about and share the potential of the device - especially when talking about innovating, creating and sharing. I wonder who would like to start us off with an edtalk, tedtalk, or youtube clip....


YAY, fabulous catch up in the sun today! It was great to sit down and catch up and look forward to some e-opportunities for 2013! Here is a bit of a summary of our chat...
Goals for 2013:
* Catch up at least twice a term in schools or homes;
* Next catch up to be at Anne's place on Thursday the 4th of April, 5pm - Dave and Jane to organise video clip to share, takeaways for shared dinner, or domestic goddess will provide (not likely sorry)
