Last week I was sick and so it was great to be back on site for 2 days anyway.  We had covered so much in the first two week's this Term that given my absence, it was important to revisit information and reaffirm our thinking.

e-Learners also realise I am away next week writing the third milestone for our ICTPD cluster.  So...when I am back on deck yet again I will have to re-motivate and reaffirm where we are exactly.  Time to think and time to play.  Absence from the e-classroom does make the heart and mind grow fonder:)
Our workshop was I believe (given the feedback and feed forward) a success as 4 e-Learners presented themselves in a very professional manner and enjoyed 'sandpit time' with teachers who attended our session.

What made the whole day come together...
* Branding - t-shirts, lanyards and business cards gave that professional EDGE!
* Setting up the workshop area in advance and making sure IT equipment worked
* Rehearsing, modifying and 'winging' parts of our presentation
* Carol (mum of Shawn) transporting students over to Rotorua
* Mr More being there and supporting our thinking and learning journey
* Reflection and wind down time at the end

We have since sparked interest from a number of BOP schools and over the Term we envisage visits from a few.

Yes, a fabulous day had by all.  We now forward to planning a couple of workshops for our up-coming PeaK-ICT Conference in August:)

    Paving the Way...

    My Goals for Term 1, 2011

    Self and Well-Being:
    I will record discoveries, insights and inspirational ideas in my reflective blog every week. I will complete one sit in silence meditation session every week.

    Home and Family: I will spend quality time with my family every week.  I will pan a special dinner for my family and I every month.

    Business and Career:  I will set up and continually support a professional learning network.  I will take one weekend off from work every month.

    Community and Humanity:  
    I will do 'one green thing' that will benefit others and or/the planet
    . I will practice three or more random acts of random kindness every week.
