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.
