Preparing for GAFE, Indonesia
Posted August 4, 2012on:
I am preparing for a presentation at Google Apps For Education, Jakarta, Indonesia on 9 Aug. I will share the presentation later.
The event is on Singapore’s National Day and I need to fly out the night before, attend the event the next day, and fly back that same day. I will be back so late that I will not even see the fireworks display from a plane window. I will also need to take a day of leave to give myself my own holiday to spend with my family.
Have four external "talks" to give over the next few months. Going to try to turn them into "listens" & "chats"!—

I want to do this as it gives me the opportunity to try something a bit different with my presentations (see tweet above), to spread the word on open learning and alternative assessments, and to network with educators in the region.
This is the nature of modern work and it requires a different mindset. That mindset needs to be translated into practice. This is easy to say and difficult to do, but I am going to try to have some fun in the process!
