      • DO YOU GET IT?
    • Just checking…
      • Web 2.0 – what does it mean to the person sitting next to you (definition)?
      • How do they really feel about ‘the internet’ (as an educator)?
      • How many hours do they spend online per week?
      • Have they ever viewed Dr Michael Wesch’s video: The Machine is Us ?
    • Building Planes (as they fly)
      • VIDEO
    • Participatory Media
      • Web 2.0 is about participation and community
      • Our participation is essential if students are to get the full benefit of ‘learning devices’ and wireless connectivity
      • All the tools are basically free (and fun)
      • We will continue to learn while ‘building planes’
    • Just checking…
      • Please complete the handout…
    • What is a PLN?
    • My ‘Personal Learning Network’
      • I click on links sent via
      • Often I save them to
      • These sites are then fed into my
      • Using an RSS feed
    • RSS Feeds & Google Reader
    • Social Bookmarking
    • Blogging
    • My Blog
      • Has become an important part of my PLN
      • My blog is personal and professional
      • Other educators follow me on Twitter and see my updates, have an RSS feed on my blog and are part of my ‘Delicious’ network
      • Increasingly they are on
      • We know and trust each other
    • Micro-blogging What are you doing?
    • "We teach others by teaching ourselves anew." Garth Boomer
    • The way forward…
      • If every staff member was able to use Google Reader , Delicious & Twitter with many leaders blogging , ongoing formal and informal learning could be shared
      • Collaboration would lead to the dispersion of new tools and ideas throughout the system
      • The individual would be at the centre of their learning
    • What if…
      • The staff of each region LEAD learning using Web 2.0 concepts to collaborate?
      • All of you were connected with RDs, SEDs, principals, DPs and APs using the tools discussed?
      • Senior executive sharing this in their schools?
      • Our regions going 2.0 and supporting this in schools?
      • Your two new SDD days late in 2009 supporting staff with ‘a package’ after some trials in terms 2 & 3?
    • Teacher-Librarians
      • What if the librarians at every school supported their Principal and teaching colleagues to collaborate using these tools?
    • 2009 ISER Plan
      • Just a reminder, this connects to our plan to
      • Assist communities of schools to use technology as a means of communication and curriculum sharing
      • Implement professional learning in innovative teaching practice using technology
      • Promotion of networks
      • Workshops for teachers using Connected Classroom and other technologies
    • Disclaimer
      • I have a vested interest in all this waaay beyond my role as a DP in the ISER...
    • 2009 - 2022 My daughter Lucy has commenced Kindergarten at her local state school and graduate in 2022; if all goes well.
    • 2009 - 2022
      • What will her personal
      • experience of school
      • be like?
    • The future?
      • Will she always feel like this about school?
    • Sarah will graduate in 2025
    • ...and in 2028 Darcy will retire; if such a concept still exists
    • Ways of Seeing
