DrupalEdu - Learning - Teaching - UsingDuring the Open Space on Drupal and Education I scribbled some rough notes as folks introduced themselves and outlined their interest in the broad topic.

Distilling that interest into its purest essence, I'dsay that Drupal in Education is about Learning Drupal, Teaching Drupal and Using Drupal to support Teaching and Learning.

The government has been engaged in the development of a new nation wide curriculum for some time now.  The curriculum authority ACARA is currently calling for feedback and survey responses on the General Capabilities.

You need to register to view the General Capabilities and to respond to the consultation online.

I'm running a full day Inkscape workshop for ICT in Education Victoria on Wed 14 September 2011 at the Statewide Resources Centre in Carlton (150 Palmerston Street)

It's aimed at absolute beginners - new to Inkscape and new to vector drawing in general.

It's sub-titled Drawing across the Curriculum because most of the attendees will be school teachers, from primary and secondary schools. We'll be exploring where graphics fit in the curriculum and how a tool like Inkscape might be helpful to teachers themselves, and whether their students might also find it useful.

I'm going to linux.conf.au - Wellington 18-23 January 2010

Goodness me, it really is only a week away now. The best linux and free and open source conference I've ever ever been to. This year linux.conf.au is in Wellington, New Zealand at http://lca2010.org.nzLCA2009 was fabulous, LCA2008 was brilliant, LCA2007 was awesome and LCA2006 was inspiring. I expect LCA2010 to be better than all of them. Combined.

No Pressure Guys ;)

The Welly10 team, slaving and sleep-deprived, have been putting the finishing touches on a well-executed plan. I truly fear they are putting all of us who went before them to shame.

Here's what I'm looking at doing in Wellington next week.
