An Aussie’s adventure in USA Part I: ISTE, Washington DC, Travel Tips and Understanding all things USA

An Aussie’s adventure in USA Part I: ISTE, Washington DC, Travel Tips and Understanding all things USA

Those that follow me on Twitter are aware that I’m currently traveling around USA introducing my 13 year old son to the wonders of America after attending ISTE. We’ve been learning a lot, and it’s really hard to explain everything in 140 characters,  so I’ve decided to share everything in more detail here. Apologies for the long post but I’ve tried to include a bit for everyone from travel tips for Aussies. ISTE to what we’ve been doing.   Feel…

Visiting Melbourne…Want to catch up?

Visiting Melbourne…Want to catch up?

I’m going to be in Melbourne from May 11 to May 18. My mum’s attending a conference from May12-13 and asked me to join her as she doesn’t get much opportunity to holiday. Perhaps explains where I get it from my craziness from. But at 72 she leads an incredibly busy life.  Still works 3 days per week plus does volunteer work.  Between that and family commitments — it’s no surprise there’s not much time to holiday. Getting to the point 😎…

My chances of winning all the chocolate ARE?

My chances of winning all the chocolate ARE?

Life’s been a bit tougher the past 12+ months which is why there’s been less of Sue around than previously. And off course, during the same period I’ve also been a bit accident prone so some of my friends, who have been there when I’ve needed them, have decided it’s time for a smile and laugh. So as a bit of harmless fun they’ve created the Sue Waters’s Injury Sweepstake. I’ve been lead to believe if I make it to 30…

What would YOU like me to do a Presentation on?

What would YOU like me to do a Presentation on?

Feel like helping out? Some background I”m presenting at The Reform Symposium, a 48 hour free e-conference that begins Friday, July 30th at 2pm PDT (LA Time) and ends Sunday, August 1st at 2:30pm PDT (LA Time). You’ll find details for my presentation and how to join here! But I’ve decided to be different.  Rather than me choose the topic of my presentation.  We’ve invited people to suggest topics (and titles). I’ve now condensed topic suggestions — all we now…

The Story Behind That Twitteraholic Post

The Story Behind That Twitteraholic Post

There’s always a story behind what inspires bloggers to write specific posts. Unfortunately we aren’t always able to include that aspect in our posts 🙁 Maybe it is me?  But often the story behind the post is just as intriguing and fascinating as the post. So I thought you might be interested in the story behind A Twitteraholic’s Guide to tweets, hashtags, and all things Twitter? The Inspiration Being at a large conference like ISTE, where you have over 13,000…

Free to good home!

Free to good home!

Any takers? I’ve had enough of the work involved with dealing with spammers on Ning sites. So decided to reduce the workload by getting rid of eTools and Tips for Educators. It’s a cool name and URL – http://etools.ning.com/ If Ning is like blog sites once a URL has been deleted no-one including the original user can create the site again with that URL. Let me know if you would like to take it over (and use how you want)…

Always Push Those Boundaries

Always Push Those Boundaries

It’s amazing how a blast from the past can be such a powerful reminder! I created Animoto video below over 2 years ago! It was unusual because as I said in the description: Had to push the boundaries of using Animoto by adding words and voice. Not because it was a good idea, it probably wasn’t, but the challenge was there so had to try! Today David N. left me the timely reminder in a comment: Happy to say I…

Relaxing Is?

Relaxing Is?

I’m currently enjoying a leisurely few days family holiday visiting my friend. Obviously I forgot to tell her dog I’m definitely NOT a dog person!  And balancing a MacBook and dog on lap while working on an iPhone isn’t easy 🙁 Send back the cat! Hope you’re all having a great holiday break and here’s looking forward to an exciting 2010!

Using Public Google Waves For Personal Learning

Using Public Google Waves For Personal Learning

There’s always a shiny new toy– and with it the stampede to use. Yes that was also me once too 🙁  Nowadays I’ve learnt very slow, steady saves time and my sanity. So I’m incredibly proud of the fact that I’ve never watched ANY Google Wave videos, read ANY tutorials and avoided every invite until I stumbled across a reason for investigating. My motivation was I discovered you can set up public waves that any one can join. I decided…
