Friday 13th: Definitely My Lucky Day at the 2011 DEECD Innovation Showcase!

The DEECD Innovation Showcase is an annual event showcasing the wonderful work of students and educators in Victorian Government Schools.  I was so excited to have the opportunity to attend this year’s Showcase with our Director of ICT, Nathan Burgess.

The link to the SlideShare presentation below shows the many highlights of the day for me and I was fortunate enough to share these highlights afterwards with members of our ICT Professional Learning Teams Program.  At our school, we are very fortunate to have wonderful support to attend and participate in various PD Programs.  I believe it is important that we then share our highlights, what we learnt, etc… not only with our colleagues, but with the wider education community.

The day was full of inspirational people!  Some of the inspiration came from unlikely sources like comedian, Anh Doh.  We laughed and we cried as Anh told the most amazing stories of his life, many of which struck a chord with me as an educator.

Congratulations to all involved in this year’s exciting Showcase.  Thank you for giving educators from Government, Catholic and Independent Schools the opportunity to see your inspiring work.
