eTrain conference

It was a pleasure to contribute to the eTrain conference. The eTrain conference was a Melbourne Grammar School initiative in conjunction with the AISV (Association of Independent Schools Victoria) and the Australian Government Quality Teacher Program. The Collingwood Children’s Farm and Abbotsford Convent was the site of this inaugural event.

The event was both an innovative learning experience the 100 or so year 5 and 6's and a showcase of ICT based learning for the many visiting teachers.

There were 14 programs that kids could chose from, including video making, podcasting, claymation, Kahootz, music and art.

I ran a program on game making for 6 students but with the frequent visitors it was often 18.

You can upload their creations.

Congratulations to the organisers, this is what school could and should be like.
