#GEGNZ Sparkshop 2017 - designed to "spark" innovative practice this event format is similar to an unconference with a twist!
If you’re keen to pitch a Sparkshop we invite you to add your idea on the slide deck by 5pm Friday 19 May. On the day you will have one minute to pitch your idea to attendees, who will then signal their interest via a Google Form. Sparkshops with the most audience interest will form the programme for the Sparkshop sessions for the remainder of the day. We are hoping to schedule three time slots with three to four Sparkshops to chose from and conclude with a SLAM!

Be Internet Awesome...
I have introduced this interactive game in the last week as an opportunity for learners to gauge their confidence to make smart decisions online. We have been approaching this as an opportunity to challenge our current cybersmart learning as part of an exisiting programme of learning.
