Interesting links from Blog readers

Submitted by Deb Avery
From one of our members, Arthur Preston, comes news of a conference on 21st Century Learning in Port Elizabeth this weekend.
The No Limits to learning conference will be held at Elsen Academy on Friday(Cyber-bullying) and Saturday (21st Century Classrooms.)

The Conference home page sets this challenge:

“Technology – we have it, so why aren’t we using it?”

The aim of this conference is to expose teachers to what’s out there in terms of interactive technologies, hardware and software that SHOULD be used in classrooms today and then how to use it and why we should use technology to be effective educators, considering the learners we are trying to teach (learning styles, genders differences, etc.)

Sign up for the conference at http://www.nolimitstolearning.co.za
if you are interested.

The other interesting link is from Carol Brown who writes for OnlineCollege.org. Her article "50 Reasons to invite facebook into your Classroom" makes interesting reading.
