Here is the presentation I gave today at the ELH conference in Lorne. Right now I’m barely able to keep my eyes open! Commentary about the conference will have to wait until tomorrow. Sleep beckons….

What luck for me that you were presenting on my day off! Great stuff, Jenny, I enjoyed every second of it. Marie and I will be presenting to our staff Monday. I hope to show them the value of my yr 7 ning. You’ve given me direction and ideas. Thanks.
Hello Jenny, I just love modern technology that allowed me to watch your presentation on my laptop across the continents, thanks to Steve Collis’ recording. Made me feel like I know you a little after reading your blog and then seeing and hearing you live 🙂
I am a great fan of Ning, too, and agree with you totally on the importance of the people and the relationships and not the technology as such! Ning works very well in this respect. It’s also very user-friendly for even beginning teachers, and students usually have no trouble with it whatsoever.
I have tried to guide students into more in-depth blog writing on our Nings, but that seems to be a big hurdle for many. They just feel more comfortable with the shorter, texting-style wall posts or forum discussions. Am working on improving this, especially as my students are senior high school, 16-19-year olds.
Thank you for sharing all your knowledge and enthusiasm!
Isn’t it truly amazing how we can share what we are doing across continents. To think you’ve been in Finland watching me deliver a presentation here in Australia!
My kids do like the forum discussions and what they post there often leads to deep discussion in class. I would love them to extend their thinking to blog posts too. I’ll have to keep encouraging them.
