This week, well today till Friday, is conference week. Hundreds of teachers are traveling to Christchurch to attend ULearn. Although there are still frequent aftershocks, 20 alone during the last 24 hours with one being measured at 5.0, most are minor, and I didn’t even feel the one just at 11:36 a.m. The Christchurch Quake Map is a fantastic though horrific visualization of all the quakes that have happened since September 4, 2010.
I flew in rather early today thinking that I needed to be at a workshop, but that engagement was canceled. Thus, I take the time to work and put the finishing touches on my Mahara workshop which will take place tomorrow (Wednesday) morning. Christ’s College, where my breakout session will take place, has great computer labs. It should be fun to explore Mahara with the 25 participants tomorrow.
A great aside: We have fantastic sunny spring weather and the forecast says it stays that way until Friday. 🙂
Later today we will set up our “Open Source Schools” stand in the exhibitor hall (stand #20) where I will be found for most of the time till Friday. Conference participants can win a Flip camera. More info will be available at the stand.
Let the conference begin!
