New Zealand’s First Online ICT PL Conference

I’ve just begun to dig into the depths of No Time4Online conference hosted by Core Education. So far I’m about halfway through the opening keynote address by Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach (Keynote 1: Keeping Up with the Net Generation). I missed Sheryl’s presentation to Tuanz07 opting for Rotorua so I’m looking forward to the next few days. I like the idea of an online conference that can be dipped in and out of over two weeks (28 May – 8 June).

The conference splash page promises us explorations and examples of collaborative online learning and the application of Web 2.0 technologies in teaching and learning. There is access to audio and video links and support material, and participate is called for the collaborative areas. Pre-conference previews are available now, with a ‘Time2 Explore’ cafe (forum), blog, and wiki areas. Derek Wenmoth is the closing keynote.

I’ll be looking for any ‘clues’ as to how I can integrate Web 2.0 into my senior classes doing NCEA. Not so many problems integrating the technologies into the junior classes, but I don’t have any this year…

I must ensure I join the conversation in the forum after each presentation.
