Two sleeps to go before we present! Simon’s workshop is full and mine is growing steadily. It’s been nose to the grindstone, hard out working on, what I’m hoping, will be two most enjoyable and worth while workshops that we have been preparing for the conference in Rotorua. We both received this very encouraging email today …..
Gidday, Simon and Chrissy.
I just wanted to offer my very best wishes for your presentations at L@S.
I know that you will be a bit tense: it’s an awesome thing that you are
doing to share your learning with others, but of course there is personal
risk in it and you show great courage in stepping up. From what I have seen
of both of you though, the things that will carry you through are your
professionalism, your zest for teaching, the excitement you have for
delivering fresh opportunities to kids, and a pair of bloody good, inclusive
smiles. Have fun, stay humble, let the audience speak – and the day will be
May it go well, guys.
Wow. That’s awesome! Friday night we had a “dry run” on our presentations – I’m in “overload of information” mode because there’s so many awesome ideas to share about the Digital Weather Station that I don’t know where to start! Simon saves the day and refocuses me! Thanks Simon! We run through the Skype Talk & Write and apart from the wireless internet connection refusing to play ball, things look extremely good there! But check out his blog tonight – it doesn’t end there!
Spent all weekend diligently working on the Weather Station presentation – (only a couple of hours break to go fishing – grins!) Open it up tonight to put the finishing touches on it and get the message every facilitator hates one night before they leave for a conference: CORRUPT file – cannot open! Oh *&%^! Began from scratch. It’s now 1.35am in the morning and I’m finally finished. This time it’s written to a flash drive – just in case! I wonder if this kind of thing ever happens to David Warlick? I’ve booked in to hear two of his addresses in Rotorua + the keynote (I hope he doesn’t think I’m stalking him!!) Can’t wait!! May nothing else go wrong. Please. Fingers and toes crossed!
