e-Learning Round-Up | 24 January 2012

With only a couple of weeks to go until we are all back into the flurry of school life, this is prime planning time before we get to busy to think!;-)

Now is a good time to post questions for 2012 in one of our groups. Whether your e-learning question relates to Teaching, Technologies, Professional Learning or Leadership, there is a group for you. Follow the links in the Enabling e-Learning parent from group page [/pg/groups/118255/enabling-elearning/], or talk to us via Twitter or Facebook.

We look forward to seeing many of you at the Learning@School conference this week, and in thge Enabling e-Learning groups this year!
