I am presenting two workshops on the day.
The first one is on BlogED and how it can be used in the English classroom. I will be using the following resources, sourced specifically from members of my PLN and in particular Darcy Moore, within my presentation before looking at some examples from other educators (again thanks to my PLN including Bianca and Troy) as well as my own class BlogEd blogs and finishing with getting teachers to set up a blog for one of their classes/courses.

The second presentation is called “Resourcing the Net” and will introduce teachers to the wide range of Web 2.0 tools available to allow teachers and students to connect, collaborate and create. A huge thanks to Pip Cleaves from the Hunter Region for allowing me to use her resources as part of my presentation! Here are a few of the sites I will be visiting during my presentation. There is just so much out there and this is just a few…..

Well, there’s the basics of what I will be doing on the day. Hopefully, there will be enough there for everyone to take something away with them which they will use back in the classroom tomorrow, next week, next term.
