Hands up if you are a teacher geek?
Yes, I can proudly say that I am!
So, I was very proud to represent Australia at the EDMODO conference on Thursday morning.
A whole session was dedicated to the Aussie Teachers, called: WakeUp Australia! Aussie Showcase
3 teachers (including myself) were moderated by Bianca Hewes (the GURU of Edmodo!).
The random and interesting thing about the 4 of us, is that we all actually live so close – the Edmodo people had no idea of this!
So, we met up before to discuss how we were going to approach this task of being presenters.
It was such an exhilarating experience to share what I have done in my classroom with approx 250 other teachers that I saw were online when I was presenting…
It was a strange experience to not see any faces and only hear my voice, and I hope that all enjoyed listening.
Sadly, because of the time difference, I missed the earlier parts of the conference which would have been great to hear, but am patiently awaiting the recording of the whole thing.
Teachers have taken up Edmodo to use in such different ways: differentiation of reading groups, pen pals, Games Based Learning, Project Based Learning, role playing in english, flipped classrooms, intergration of other web 2.0 tools…. the possibilities are endless….
So, if you missed my presentation, here is a copy of my slides….
