OLPC at ICTEV 2008

Submitted by kattekrab on Sat, 24/05/2008 - 17:02

I'm sitting in  Roland's session  on  Web 2.o bling at the  2008 conference for ICT in 
Education Victoria (ICTEV),  Like VITTA this teacher association is focussed on supporting teachers use of Info and Comms tech in schools for learning and teaching.

A week or so ago I put out a call to some of the owners of the LCA XOs to ask if I could borrow their machines to show to teachers at the conference. 

Huge thanks to all of you who came through and agreed to help out.

Climate Change, Energy Crisis, Food Crisis.

Forced to stop watching the 2020 summit proceedings because of particularly bad TV reception (north and west melbourne, known bug) and equipment failure - I went back to the more interactive machine of the web - and decided to blog instead.

In the lead up of the 2020 summit I've put most of my energy into the open tech side of things, open source software, open knowledge - but I'm just as deeply passionate about the issues of climate change, and indigenous realities.

memories for life

Aaah Cool.

Cafuego - Thank you for helping me get the del.icio.us module working so it pulls the random links I store into my blog.  It's pulled up the last 10 - or a random selection - or something (ok I haven't figured that bit out yet) - and the last one was memories for life.

Representing Memory: A USB key elephant? So I visited it again. It's really kinda fascinating. It led me to a paper published in the Journal of The Royal Society Interface in 2006 called "Memories for life: a review of the science and technology" and is also available as PDF.

Equinox approaches

Hmmm - now I've made a poster... perhaps I should organise a picnic - celebrate the equinox - I could call it the bad friday picnic. For heathens, pagans and non-believers.
