Creating Opportunities for Student Positive Online Identity

Last week I gave an Ignite presentation at the Association of Heads of Independent Schools of Australia AHISA. It was my first national conference so for me it was a brilliant opportunity to share my experiences about connecting my class globally using Edublogs, Skype, Wikispaces and Schoology.

I had  twenty slides and twenty seconds to speak for each slide. Creating my Ignite presentation involved a lot of editing to condense my conviction that as educators we need to be actively encouraging students to develop a positive online identity. Below are my PowerPoint, proposal, script and information about the conference event.
