Great to see more Australian sites emerging in the ed-blogsophere. This one comes out of Western Australia and looks well organised and interesting to read. So much so that I’ve added it to my rss reader already!
The purpose of Digital Chalkie is to provide a hub for Australian educators using ICT to engage and facilitate the best educational outcomes for their students. The domain name uses the word ‘chalkie’ as an affectionately defunct Australian term for teachers.
The goal is to establish a hub/magazine/think-tank for teachers to support each other and to collaborate in the use of ICT.For example, to:- Provide technical assistance to other teachers and trainee practitioners- Discuss educational issues, particularly related to learning technology- Share discoveries, resources, accomplishments, excitement and areas of interest- Present ideas for integration of learning technology into the curriculum, specifically WA Student Outcome Statements
All educators are welcome to make posts and to comment on the posts of others. Your professional execution of this freedom is asked for in return. After registration you will be enabled to comment on previous posts and to create your own posts. You might be inspired to write a post that could amount to 10 lines telling about a terrific website you know about and would like to share and discuss with fellow educators, or you might wish to share an opinion on ICTs in Education. You might even present a tutorial on something you are well versed in.
