Apologies for cross-posting...

It's just 1 week to go to the 'live to learn, learn to blog' event!

Registrations close at noon on Wednesday 29/8.

Blogging is a fantastic resource for teachers of all disciplines. It develops ICT skills, encourages writing and expression and can be as creative as one's imagination, for example Heather Blakey's fantastic site - http://www.dailywriting.net/BlakeyWeb.htm

Our 'live to learn, learn to blog' event is suitable for novices and appeals to teachers from all disciplines.

Come and learn blogging and web 2.0 technology from the experts...James Farmer, CEO of edublogs.org (the largest education blogging network on the web) is presenting his keynote: 'Edublogs are Go! How Blogs are Changing Teaching & Learning Online'. Local and interstate teachers are presenting on a range of topics (see below).

Individuals register online, or for groups, download the invite and return to VITTA.
