As an organiser of the first OZeLIVE conference, Tech Talk Tuesdays will resume some time in March. In the meantime, please consider being a presenter and/or participant in our exciting upcoming conference on Sat 23d and Sun Feb 24th.
Three years ago, under the encouragement of Steve Hargadon, Carole McCulloch and I commenced the Australia eSeries to bring together all educational communities in Australia and enable webinars, PD and discussion to take place across all educational sectors and through to the globe. It is with some pride that on a very fast schedule, the OZeLive conference — the free, Australia time-zone friendly educational technology virtual conference will be held in February. The team from Australia e-Series in collaboration with The Learning Revolution, are very excited about holding our very own first conference in 2014 online, free, in Australia friendly time zones (and much of Asia, New Zealand, Pacifica etc) and that will encourage presentations and sharing from all educational bodies and across all educational sectors.
As such, we are looking for presenters, participants and volunteers. Will you be part of this our exciting first conference? We would love you to be part of it.
See the official flyer for more information, please join our Australian Educators ning (it is not just for Australians) and watch out for the hashtag #ozelive on twitter, facebook etc.

About this session: Life can be just crazily busy and with so many wonderful resources, things to do, things that need to be done, how can we keep some sanity and form of organisation. This session will discuss some of the problems faced by networked teachers, some different methods for organisation and keeping up with it all and a general sharing amongst participants with their tips and tricks.

The race that stops a nation, will also stop Tech Tuesday going to air this week. As Melbourne Cup Day is a public holiday in Melbourne and as there are many staff social activities on that day (and my school is no exception), Tech Talk Tuesday will take a break and return next week. Hope to see you then
