As I sit at the Conference ICSEI in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. As a professional practice, I engage in conferences with a critical eye and an analytical mind. I have learnt to gather what I need, discard what is useless to my context and treasure what will most benefit my students and my school. As I write this, I am listening to a professor from Malaya University speaking about I-maps for moral education. As I listen, I am able to blog, enrol in a course, tweet, think and consider my ideas about learning all at the same time. One might see this as an issue. It just makes me think about conference learning… Do students do while learning? Do they use every part of their thinking…? Our minds are very clever, we think on many levels… ‘Deeper Learning’.
This January, while traveling to Indonesia, China and the US investigating leadership I will undertake a MOOC*. The very first one ever that I will partake in. I am warmed by the thoughts that I will be learning almost 24/7, a true dual processing learning experience. Bring it on.
The experience will inform my educational leadership of the possibilities to improve the opportunities for my students.
Just like Vegemite kids, the brightest brightest we can be!
