Mark Collinson: Mullumbimby Northern NSW. What started as a way to document ICT skills achieved by my K-6 students, as well as a means to inform planning has become a way of reflecting upon and discussing issues related to the achievement of higher order thinking skills in the young 21st century citizen.

Learning - Thinking - Playing

Having worked as a primary teacher, ICT advisor, project manager, Network manager, New Media specialist (whatever that means), executive officer and IT Director I have had a lot of very valuable experiences I like change and I like challenges - I also like sharing and developing ideas with like minded people to engage our teachers and students and educate our beaurcartic friends. I am blessed with the ability to think out side the box and to be inventive and this is what I hope I bring to my work as a consultant and professional development provider - We will see.

I have also started a global classroom digital story project at Global Classroom. Feel free to drop us a comment and join our global project. I have also been developing some help video clips for blogging at Global Student. These may be of use to beginners. We are all new to blogging and are really enjoying our experience.

 

Digital Chalkie

 

Paul Reid: I'm a teacher in Western Australia integrating ICTs across the curriculum. The purpose of Digital Chalkie is to provide a hub for Australian educators using ICT to engage and facilitate the best educational outcomes for their students. The domain name uses the word ‘chalkie’ as an affectionately defunct Australian term for ICT using teachers. The goal is to establish a hub/magazine/think-tank for teachers to support each other and to collaborate in the use of ICTs and 'web 2.0' tools. All educators are welcome to make posts and to comment on the posts of others. With the help of Brad Hicks we are now doing regular webcasts on topics of interest to the Digital Chalkie hub audience. Again to further these collaborative opportunities, we welcome other edubloggers to participate in the live sessions.
