This past week I have been applying for various grants and awards to fund my attendance at several conferences in 2011. On March 17th at the Melbourne Museum is the “Toolbox for Environmental Change Forum 2011 – Using Technology for Sustainability“. On April 18th and 19th, on the Gold Coast, is the Slide2Learn Education Event for iPad, iPod and iPhones in education, with Tony Vincent as keynote speaker. Last year’s event in Shepparton was a unique mobile learning event that kickstarted my interest in all things ‘i’. Then from the 19th to 23rd July, in Brisbane, is the 6th World Environmental Education Congress. I was lucky enough to attend the 4th WEEC in Durban, South Africa, as a representative of the Australian Education Union. It was an exciting and inspiring event, with environmental educators from around the globe presenting research and workshops on education for sustainability.
One of the awards criteria was to “provide evidence of exemplary and innovative teaching practice with reference to the e5 instructional model”, which led to the above presentation.
