Telling our story-The Minibeast unit

This week while in Sydney training a new group of Master Trainers in the Intel Program Teach Thinking with Technology I will also be participating in the Victorian Dept of Education Knowledge Bank Online Elluminate conference.
So on the morning of October 12th at 9.00 am I'll be sitting at a laptop with headphone and mic in a room in Sydney sharing our story of integrating and developing teachers using ICT and higher order thinking with teachers from Victoria and all over Australia and beyond.
I plan to take the participants on a virtual journey to illustrate the way two teachers and their students used technology and higher order thinking skills to wonder about the life and value of the minibeasts of our world.
Along the way we will use new technologies such a wikis, blogs, podcasts and online video.
I hope you enjoy it.
