The Third I-Connect Mini Conference

In 2010 and 2012 the cluster held successful half day conferences. This year it was decided to have a full day conference. Each school assigned a teacher only day to the event.

120 teachers, 40 students and 20 guests attended the conferences. Guests included presenters and teachers from contributing schools and the Digital Daze Cluster.

As well as teachers who were quite used to the role we had 4 teachers presenting on this scale for the first time.

As well as the digital advisers from each school being involved I support roles the hospitality class of William Colenso College did an outstanding job in catering, morning tea, lunch and end of day nibble for all. As an authentic learning exercise in conjunction with the I-Connect cluster this was most impressive.

It is now December and teachers are still talking about the conference especially:

  • The Keynote Speech of Stuart Middleton
  • The Chrissie Butler Spotlight and Design for learning workshop
  • The 2 x Joseph Driessen Workshops
  • The food
  • The collegiality
