When: Tuesday May 7th, 4-5:15pm, Melbourne Australia time (gmt+10). Please note that we will be taking an excursion to another webinar.
As the National Gallery of Victoria is holding a webinar at the same time as the usual Tech Talk Tuesday sessions, it has been decided to participate in their innovative webinars as part of Tech Talk Tuesday. It is wonderful to see community institutions such as the National Gallery of Victoria conducting webinars for educationalists. I would like to support them in this venture and encourage people who would normally attend Tech Talk Tuesday to see how exciting these online sessions can be as organised by the NGV.
Monet’s Garden: The Musée Marmottan Monet,Paris is the winter exhibition at the Art Gallery from May 10th to Sept 8th. This webinar is for primary art and classroom teachers presenting a range of art and cross-curricular learning activities for the classroom. This session includes an introductory talk providing contextual information about the work and life of Claude Monet and an outline of school-based activities designed for a specific year level including
- Ideas for visual art making activities, including materials, media and procedure
- Descriptions and ideas for cross-curricular activities which have been designed to complement/relate to the themes being explored in the art room
- Discussion of relevant resources.
Please join me as a participant for Monet Comes to School for years 5 and 6 and support NGV. There will be something for everyone in this webinar. Here is the link to join this session. The regular Tech Talk Tuesday will be back next week with a session by Cleverlize on creating exciting apps for learning. Don’t miss this one.
Please note that this session will be postponed for several weeks. Instead, Tech Talk Tuesday will participate in the National Gallery of Victoria’s webinar on Monet Comes to School for years 5 and 6. See this new post for more details.
About this session: This is an ‘unconference’ style webinar where participants are encouraged to bring along some of the latest tools or apps that they are using or ‘playing’ with. Those who join us will have the chance to play with the tools, share what they have learnt and discuss how it could be used in the classroom or learning. Alternatively, come along with questions about some tools that you would like to use.

When: Tuesday April 30th 4-5pm, Melbourne Australia time. See timeanddate for your timezone and day.
About this session: Last Tuesday we looked at google document as a tool for engaging students. Participants also shared the names of tools that they had experienced. This second session in this series will enable participants to share their favourite tools and step us through them. We will then use our collective intelligence and experience to brainstorm how these can be successfully used for learning.
Come along and if possible bring along a favourite tool, share it with us and push innovation further. Where possible the tool will be stepped through and a collective document created to capture our knowledge.
Here is the link to the recording of this session.
When: Tuesday, April 23rd 4-5pm Melbourne Australia time (gmt+10). Please note that we are now out of daylight saving time. Check the time and date here for your time zone.
About this session:- Anne Mirtschin will lead a discussion on engaging students with technology. Discussion may centre around the following:-
- is engagement in learning important?
- what impact does it have on learning
- how do we know when students are engaged – how does it look, feel and sound?
- Sharing tools that participants have found to work
- Looking at google apps, starting with google document and how it can be used for collaborative learning, sharing, engagement etc. This has been one of my favourite tools.
If you cannot make this session, it would be much appreciated if you could add your answers to the above questions. Hope to see you with us. Here is the link to the recording of this session.
