September 2010 Conference
Thank you to the presenters and participants who attended the islPAL conference held in September, 2010, at Stuartholme School.
We were extremely grateful to the school for hosting the event and to our conference organising committee, volunteers, and sponsors.
All strands – School Improvement, Literacy, Numeracy and Science, Ways of Learning and Digital pedagogies, Service learning and Values Education – provided a platform for informed discussion among educators.
Our intention was to bridge the gap between theory and practice and encourage teachers, principals and researchers to share knowledge and experience for individual and community well being and safe, sustainable living. We believe we have established a sound foundation for future collaboration. Several projects have emerged based upon conference feedback and requests.
We have received wonderful, positive feedback and we are looking forward to building on this inaugural occasion to design an exciting and collaborative learning experience for 2012.
