Many years ago I completed a an Arts Degree at the University of Sydney majoring in Psychology. I have worked for the past 16 years as an Integration Aide in Secondary Schools, initially in Sydney and now in Melbourne. I am currently based at the Sandringham 7-10 Campus and working with students across all year levels. I have used some of the Web 2.0 tools. I guess I would say that whilst I am enthusiastic about these applications I am always somewhat nervous when I first start and tend to stick with what I know rather than branching out. I am hoping that by completing this course my confidence will improve and I will be better equipped to ‘have a go’ at more of these new technologies. I do not belong to any professional organisations and rely on my colleagues (and my children) to assist. At our college we have moved towards the use of I-pads in the classroom and so we are working through this together. I have been lucky to work with some young teachers who are extremely competent and have shared their knowledge, ideas and expertise. Regular staff training sessions have also been offered and I have taken advantage of them.
