My Projects

EduCampNZ: user generated 'unconference' or Barcamp. The focus is on e-learning and education, sharing ideas we've discovered and learning from each other. Everyone is invited to participate in some way.The purpose of EduCampNZ is to both learn and contribute. It is based on the Open Space Meeting Format. No real agenda is set and it will be up to participants to determine the focus for the sessions, grow their learning, network and have fun!

My Reflections

Adding widgets to these pages is not as easy as copy and pasting some html. Anyone out there want to add a widget to my page so I can see how it's done feel free. For example a widget for My Flickr (see link above) many thanks.

Also tried to embed a recording of my mihi...I ended up going around in circle so linked to the file...any help would be appreciated, searched for instructions but no luck.

I'm not sure what widgets can be used - certainly I haven't yet found a way to add things like we can over at wikispaces. Will keep you posted on what I find.
