Notes from Milton


Dreams for e-teach 2014
What is digital citizinship - ongoing focus for the year
2 meetings per term
social gatherings - allowing for catching up
realties of the classrooms - what is working, what doesn't
vast differences between schools
how do we take what we know and believe in e-learning and share this with others. eg colleagues how do we bring them on board?
promote educamps
put our e-teach member class wiki, blogs etc on
use the remaining $$ for a PD trip or visiting classrooms, conferences etc
PD for us
The digital world that our children are living in - implications for us, cybersafety, digital citizenship
