Why are great educators being held hostage by biz managers and technicians when it
comes to the use of technology?

Why is the Internet

e’d love to discuss it as part of this broader conversation.


What synergies exist with colleagues facing similar issues and promoting PLNs/PLEs in TAFE and
higher education? With educators in other states/territories?


How do we energise the whole VicPLN
community, and avoid the risk of dividing it?




Name: Judith Way, Kew High School

Questions: How can we get staff who are nearing retirement to get on board with learning
technologies (rather than just use 1:1 laptops as a $2000 pencil)?


Can we put pressure on to the appropriate authorities so that PLANE is available to all Australian
educators?


For those of us who are social media converts, how can we regulate the technology in our lives so
that we are not overwhelmed by information and
FOMO?


Name: Penny Bentley, Self Employed (Registered Teacher)


Issues and challenges addressed:

Explore the reasons why many educators are reluctant to use technology for teaching, learning
connecting and sharing.

Passions and skills to contribute:

Already connecting with educators on Facebook, happy to contribute
ongoing

.

Facilitating webinars using Blackboard Collaborate, already happening in the

...would plnlead like to be involved ?

My subject areas are Maths/Sci/Chem...would enjoy networking with teachers in specific subject
areas...be more explicit with demonstrating
how online connections can be beneficial.


Projects to explore:

The ABC Education Portal

Networking with TAFE and HigherEd sectors.

Developing a pre service teacher network...say a #vicpstpln for mentoring.



Margo Edgar Essendon North Primary

Issues &
Challenges

How do we avoid getting hamstrung by current practices
-

the challenge is to rebuild rather than
renovate,

Moving people beyond the ‘fear’ factor of social networking

Time
-

how do we create time for teachers (and others) to play and learn

(How
ever when I read other people’s ideas for issues/challenges
-

chance are I will think they are
important too, I just hadn’t thought of them yet)


Passions & skills

I seem to have lots of questions

Willing to explore, try things experiment with using techno
logy

Organised (like to see things through, if I start something will make sure I finish it)

Wouldn’t say I was creative and good at seeing big picture but can take other’s ideas and work out
how to make them work.


Projects

National curriculum
-

how we ca
n use that as an agent for change

Networks
-

building networks of students that learn from each other
-

student empowerment

Have other ideas
-

but struggling to articulate them at the moment



Name: Celia Coffa


St Luke’s Primary Blackburn South

Issues

and challenges addressed:

Addressing the divide between those who seem to understand the value of networking and those
who cannot see a personal need to be involved addressing their fears

Encouraging less confident people to take risks to ‘expose’ themsel

Passions and skills to contribute:

My personal experience of PLN has been hugely enhanced by the Face to face connections made
through gatherings such as conferences/unconferences and informal TeachMeets.

Like Margo, I have lots of ques
tions and a very open attitude to seeing things change, but not just
for change sake.



Projects to explore:

Enhancing PLN’s through face to face gatherings

Issues:

How do we reach out to graduates and beginning teachers to assist them with their craft and support
them through the difficult first few years?

How do we harness the transformative power of communication technology in education?

How can we all work smarter

and use the unique skills and abilities of each member of this network?

How large can a network (such as VicPLN) become before it becomes either splintered or unwieldy?


Projects to explore:

Using members of the network to strengthen the Personal Learning

Network program through
montor roles and more advanced courses.

Developing a PLN style course or resource for students
-
either through ergo or in another form.

Developing Bright Ideas to include more professional learning resources (in the form of user gu

To what extent do schools have responsibilities to explicitly teach ‘technology skills’ in the
broadest sense, and how that’s best organised.



How schools themselves might become confident and purposeful users of social networking
possibilities



To make lear
ning portals meaningful in an age of Facebook, or move them there or places
like Edmodo?



The dangers around the ‘Microsoft’ classroom, Khan academies, the corporatisation of
schools and the hijacking of new technologies to anti

How do we deal with/filter constant information streams to not be overwhelmed?



How can we distinguish between personal social networks and professional ones to keep a
work
-
life balance? Is this
important?



Creating digital clutter
-

-
generated content is good, but the more stuff we put out there,
the harder it is to sort through to find relevant information


Projects to explore with others



Strengthening face to face connections from PLNs (like

Celia)



Enhancing digital literacy by encouraging reflection before reaction



Networks sans technology
-

how can we take what we have learnt and use these skills in
places that are not as well

resourced as we are? (eg. Cambodia)

What pro
jects would you like to explore with others?

How does narrative or story influence engagement? Affective or cognitive?

questions
-

what came first the chicken or the egg? Is it our need to be reflective teachers which
c
ame first or did we become connected first and then become reflective? Is there something that has
nothing to do with twitter that, something greater that puts us in his room. What else do we have in
common other than being connected?


something to think
about
-

around the world people set up non profit and non government
organizations when they see something hey feel is not right and they wish to help/change etc. why
can we not do this with #vicpln. Andrew w made me realize last week that vicPLN is more
than just a
hashtag. I is a community. It is cause.


why can't we turn this into something more. An organisation who works together to make change.
We meet regularly and discuss actions, we beat down the door of our govt depts, we work together
to make

change.

Issues:

How do we work with graduates and beginning teachers to help them develop their creativity, craft
and innovative thinking through their PLN and other connections? How can we support them in
learning about how to try
new things, how to be responsible with students online, how to use their
online PLN constructively... mentoring? courses? PL? role modelling?


How can we work better with/ for connected, innovative, leaders (like this group) in addition to with
people who
are just starting out in trying new ways of teaching?


How can we (in government) work better to ask you what you want and need, and how can we
support you in this?



Projects to explore:

Peer to peer mentoring of people/schools/networks who are trying
new things, seed funding/ support
for innovative ideas, providing space (online? in person?) for networking, idea development, speed
collaborating, networking in and out of Victoria and Australia etc...?


Working on an innovation development course, for te
achers and for leaders
-

like SLV’s VicPLN, like
the PLATO TPL course, but innovation focused? What about for leadership?


Developing Innovate Here and Innovator of the Month/ other online community channels and
activities to work not just with/for newbie
s but with early adopters and people further along in their
practice?
