I am a stage three teacher from Roseville College Sydney. I currently teach a year 5 class with 25 students in it. I am passionate about integrating technology into my students’ lives. My students connect and collaborate with other students around the world. We use blogs, wikis, voicethread and edmodo to name but a few; to meet with, network with and learn from others. They share their learning at http://year5rc.edublogs.org.
Within my school I hold regular techie brekkie sessions to teach other staff how to introduce and use technology into their classrooms. I blog about these sessions at http://www.techiebrekkie.net. I was also the organiser of the first Sydney TeachMeet which was held in April this year. A further two TeachMeets have since been held and more are planned for later this year.
Presentation Title/Description: Taking professional development to the next level with techie brekkies and TeachMeets
As a connected teacher you are no doubt integrating ICT into your teaching program. How about the rest of the teachers you work with? Are they happy working with technology or do they need help even just to get started? Learn how to assist and develop others using techie brekkies and TeachMeets
