Presenting and Sharing

On Thursday 10 May I presented the concept of Digital Learning Centres at our local ICT PD cluster meeting. Staff members from five local schools attended(approximately 100 people). This presentation I did at the Learning at Schools conference held in Rotorua earlier in the year and at three TUANZ conferences held both last year and this year.
The full handouts for my presentation can be found on my wiki at http://digitallearningnz.wikispaces.com along with downloads of DLCs that can be used immediately in the classroom programme to support teaching and learning. From the presentation notes you will be able to see how to make your own DLC using PowerPoint as a learning tool.
On Friday 11 May, I went to hear Edward De Bono speak at the Sky City Convention Centre. It was an interesting day, that affirmed teaching thinking is really important, and the earlier you start the better. I have now included my templates for the six thinking hats pages that I use when creating topic based DLCs (accessible via the wiki).
