Preparing for the Journey to Africa

I am excited to share with you that in exactly one week that I will be traveling to South Africa to present at the National ICT Classroom Conference. I am thrilled and honored to be one of six International speakers and workshop leaders at this conference. I would like to personal thank Gerald Roos for inviting me to this conference and for providing me the opportunity to share my technology integration expertise, and my passion for facilitating and supporting 21st century teaching and learning environments. Gerald has also done a fabulous job organizing this technology conference with his fellow ICT team members and the Durban Girls College facility and hosting representatives.

21st Century ICT literacy topics I will be presenting on include the following:
  1. Web 2.0 Literacy Tools to Transform Teaching and Learning
  2. Be Seen ~ Be Heard: Educational Podcasting for the School Environment
  3. Transforming Teaching and Learning with Interactive Whiteboards
  4. Starting the Conversation: Social Networking to Enhance Communication
  5. Global Collaboration Projects: Open the Door to New Friends from Faraway Places
Each sectional presentation will be video streamed, embedded with a live back channel chat for immediate global reflection and guest interaction, and archived for future retrieval of content information. I will also be posting my electronic handouts through my Box.Net shared widget on my blog, so please feel to download the content I am presenting to share with your district or university staff members.

I will try my best to blog daily about the events, presentations and sights and scenes I will come in contact with to share with all of you as well. So check back often- as there will be many updates in the next two weeks.
