Otaki-Kapiti ICTPD Cluster Conference

Travelled to the Kapiti Coast, along with other facilitators from around NZ, to participate in the first conference of the OK ICT PD Cluster. Having worked only in Auckland clusters I enjoyed the opportunity to share and learn with another group of teachers on a similar odyssey. Thanks to Jan Coleman, cluster facilitator from Victoria, for hosting us all.

To those who attended my workshops resources and links are posted here.
Online Resources Comic Life

Also some gems I came away with include:
Magix Music Maker Free Download for windows...thanks Dave
Jodix Free WMA to MP3 Converter...thanks Ivan Free online brainstorming tool...thanks Jenny
Google Notebook browse, clip, and organize information from across the web in a single online location that's accessible from any computer...thanks Suzie

And enjoyed talking with Matt Holloway and Glen Southwood from Hutt International Boy's School who have formed a company De-Pens, distributing personalised USB flash drives which include everything from wristbands and MP3 players to laser pointers, at very reasonable prices. Download the flyer for their products or email for orders.

Finally I have to include a plug for Wellington, fast broadband...say no more!

It took Odysseus nine years to reach Ithaca ... must be the influence of the 21st Century learner that sees you all so cheery at Wellington Airport so soon after the Jan Coleman hosted conference - collaboration and networking is everything in F2F and Web2.0

Hey Fiona,

Thanks for all the great stuff I got from you (ie Comic Life!). Still haven't had a good play with it but reading your blog has reminded me to get on with in.

I have a few other things I've found mentioned in my blog
