School’s out Friday

Yes, it is Saturday now back in Melbourne, but I’m in Denver, Colorado right now and it’s still Friday here!

Pixar have been flooding the social networks with advertising for Toy Story 3. This mosaic video is a nice way to get the message out. They don’t have to work so hard to get my attention on this one. I loved the first two and will definitely be lining up for number three. I remember taking my daughter to see the first Toy Story movie and having to take her back for a second viewing, all because I wanted to laugh and empathise with characters that had as much appeal and relevance for adults as they did for children. Belonging, friendship and tolerance – all important life lessons that were the messages imparted from this film. Hmmnn…makes me think it might just make a good film as text study.

I had a lovely dinner with the ever helpful Sue Waters and finally got to meet Frances, (@developit on Twitter) along with other Twitter folk. This is the first time I’ve attended an ISTE Conference and tomorrow is Edubloggercon. To be honest with you, the scale of this conference intimidates me. Apparently over 18,000 people attend. I can’t even begin to imagine what that looks like. How do you find anyone you know? There is a Blogger’s Cafe, so I suppose that will act as a magnet attracting like souls. No doubt it’s going to be a very interesting and, hopefully, enlightening experience. I’ll do my best to get a couple of blog posts out if I can while I’m here.

If you’re back home in Australia, rug up in your winter woollies. T-shirt weather here  – 34 degrees celcius tomorrow!

Enjoy your weekend. : )
