  22. 22. The separate technologies which provide the telephone, the computer and the television are now CONVERGING in ways which increase the educational applications of each. CONVERGENCE becomes possible when the different technologies share systems for encoding data. DIGITILISATION entails the conversion of information to manipulable and transferable bits. 22

  25. 25. Imagine for a moment that your blackboard (or conventional whiteboard) were able to display up to the minute PC images in full colour and that you were able to add to them, annotate over them and even control them using nothing more than a pen, that you could access the internet, CD ROM material or individually prepared lesson content, all from the front of your classroom. Stop imagining, you can do all this and more … 25

  40. 40. Hogan and Norton presented a paper at the 5th IOC Congress on Sport Science in Sydney, November 1999. They indicated that: "In the period 1980-96 Australia won 25 gold and 115 total Olympic medals. This equates to $37 million per gold medal or $8 million per any medal. There was also a linear relationship between money spent and total medals won (r=0.96). [On the basis of] the cost per medal and the expenditure towards Sydney, we estimate the gold medal count will be 14 +/-1 and the total medal count will be 61 +/-4." 40
  41. 41. The final Australian tally was 56 medals: 16 gold 24 silver 16 bronze 41
  42. 42. IMPLICATIONS? 42
  43. 43. 1. Your development is too important to leave to chance. 2. ICT for phyiscal education teachers is an essential aspect of continuous professional development. 3. A range of support is needed within and outside school. 4. We need a quality assured network of support for busy people! 43
  44. 44. On-going support that recognises that learning occurs at a different pace for each of us. 44
  45. 45. A commitment to share best practice and fallible experience. 45
  46. 46. A recognition that a digital divide threatens equality of access to information rich learning opportunities. 46
  47. 47. An agreement that our minds are like parachutes … They work best when OPEN! 47
