Just a quick advertisement for a free event for Adelaide based teachers called the Web2 Showcase. Blurb from the TSOF website as follows:
Web2 Showcase: All you wanted to know but were too afraid to ask! Thursday September 21st, 2006, 4.15 – 6.30 pm, Discovery Centre, TSoF Guest presenters: Graham Wegner, Al Upton, Mike Seyfang, and Yvonne Murtagh This is a free event An introduction to some of the collaborative Web2 resources that are quick, easy, intuitive, free, personal, collaborative, connected and empowering for kids and teachers.
It's going to be in the vein of Darren Kuropatwa's Whiplash! concept where each new tool set gets a fifteen minute overview before it switches to the next presenter. I'm going to do two sections - one on wikis and the other on Personal StartPages and it is pretty amazing to be part of a group of such high calibre educators involved in working out how these new tools can play a part in our classrooms.
