The conference in Washington was HUGEl! There were over 18 000 people there!
I came across this sign many times while walking around the conference centre, and I thought that it was a great idea.
How could we use a sign like this in our classroom?
Let’s see how many ideas we can come up with ……
Here’s one to get you going:
1. If we are doing a lesson in Maths and I’m good at this topic I could put an “ASK ME” sign on my desk
PS: Prizes are on offer ;-)

On Wednesday a group of students from our school (Belmore South PS) – including 3 AllStars – represented us at the “Connected Learning Conference” at the Novotel Hotel at Brighton.
The students formed a panel to discuss their experiences using GameMaker to make digital games.
Students demonstrated their completed games, walked through how to make a game, and held a panel discussion about the value of making games in class, the educational benefits, what they learned, and their thoughts on game making. The students even answered questions from the audience.
The response from the teachers and educators in the audience was positive- and the students were professional, passionate, articulate and impressive.
Congratulations to everyone involved – you are a credit to youselves, your families and your school – thank you.
I was so proud of you all!
