Online Conference for Clusters


ICT PD Online is hosting an online conference on Centre 4 from 28th May - 8th June. This is an opportunity to explore examples of collaborative online learning and Web 2.0 technologies in teaching and learning....like blogging. Also you will be able to access audio and video links and support material, and participate in collaborative areas. The conference will begin with a keynote presentation from Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach, one of the keynote speakers from the 2007 TUANZ conference.

This is the first time we have had access to an online conference as part of the ICT PD cluster network and I am looking forward to exploring how this might work for us as a cluster. Participation is also easy as you can join the space by logging in with your Centre 4 user name and password.

To support CNS Cluster teachers I am aiming to post recommendations and links to key conference activities over the next couple of weeks. To start with I would suggest you visit the Pre-Conference Preview This page provides an overview of Web 2.0 Technologies impact on education including articles and examples of teacher use. This background material supports the conference themes and preparation for the keynotes and further collaborative activities.

Look forward to seeing you there.
