Cluster Opening

Today is a pretty special day for me.

For those who don’t know I picked up a part time job as facilitator of the regional Link Learning ICTPD cluster here in Nelson. For this term until the end of 2011 I will working four days a week for the cluster and one day a week for my class. It is an exciting time for me as I get to combine two of my favourite things in one job. For all my years of teaching children I have always loved doing it. There are have been some down times but they have never been related to working with the children. Now through my passion for using the internet, social media and promoting eLearning I have been given the opportunity to share my experiences with other teachers in thirty two schools around the Nelson area.

Wish me luck as I help build the plane while it’s in the air.

Brian Crosby’s TEDxDenverEd Video

My mate, Brian Crosby, recently had his ISTE10 video published on YouTube. I thought I would embed it here to share. Brian is a classroom teacher who integrates ICT into his daily classroom practice to entice his class to participate and build learning power. He makes learning engaging and relevant.

We even get a mention as well. It’s almost like being there. One day, Brian, one day….
