CEGSA 2009

I've submitted a workshop and a presentation for the CEGSA (Computers in Education Group of South Australia) Conference, 7th & 8th July 2009:

Scratch Workshop (Hands on workshop 90 minutes)
Scratch is good software for this learning cycle: imagine -> create -> play -> share -> reflect. You will learn or extend your Scratch know-how with the opportunity for discussion about how to use it effectively with students. The workshop also includes use of the Scratch Sensor Board

Netbooks and Schools (Presentation 45 minutes)
The rise of the netbook provides schools with the opportunity to unchain computers from labs and put them into the hands of students and their families 24/7. Come along to discuss the prospects and problems of this vision

hi bill

the region here is funding (with some parent contribution) a 1:1 netbook program for all kids in grade 6, in all of the government primary schools (a bit more than 10% of the state, i think)

(lenovo, vista, 1 GB ram, 1.6 GHz cpu)

Bill, what do you think of 1 to 1 for teachers using netbooks?
