On a journey to ULearn

The countdown to ULearn 07 is on: from 3rd to 5th October in Auckland.

I am excited to have been selected to facilitate two workshops: "So you've got a blog - now what??" and "They're FREE and on the Internet: Harnessing the power of educational games using social bookmarking".

I'm also delighted to see other great educators I know who are also presenting workshops - Allanah, Jane, Simon, Suzi and many others! It will be great to meet F2F many of these educators that I know well through reading their edublogs.

Highlights I am looking forwards to at ULearn07 would have to be the keynote by Ewan McIntosh from Scotland (who's blog I have been reading for a little while now) and the Bloggers Cafe that Jane suggested!!

See you there :)


  1. Hi Rachel,
    Wow, congratulations - that is great news! I am hoping to attend that conference too and will definately be keen to meet up in person!!! Will let you know if I get the ok to go (from the powers above!!)

  2. Hi Rachel,

    Nice to 'meet' you. I can see that you are a real addict - a girl after my own heart ;-) Looking forward to meeting F2F and hopefully attending your seminar. I've been working on some alternate reality games which involve a bit of social bookmarking amongst other things. Frustratingly nothing to show for it (yet) but maybe by the time I get down under.

    Until then, looking forward to reading what's happening in your corner of NZ.

    (BTW: It would be cool to have a separate page instead of the popup for the comments so that I could activate CoComment on the page and follow the discussion.)

  3. Hi Rachel, will be good to meet F2F. Like the idea of the bloggers cafe too ...will leave a comment on Jane's blog in support.

  4. Hey great to hear you and Allanah have been asked to take some seminars. A sure sign you are making a difference! I hope to be there so will checkout one of your seminars :+)

  5. Rachel, you will have a blast at Bloggers Cafe. It was great at NECC07 and is spreading all over!
    Nice birthday post!

  6. Congrats! You all better be skyping in your USA friends too!


THANKS for taking the time to leave me a comment. I genuinely appreciate each and every one of them :)
