NZRA conference – Invercargill

I’ve been attending the New Zealand Reading Association annual conference in Invercargill this week, presenting a couple of workshops on the “Net Gen” and Blogs, and presenting a keynote talk this morning on “Thinking Digitally”.
In preparing for my talk I revisited the online “e-book” published earlier this year by Educause titled Educating the Net Gen , edited by Diana and James Oblinger. I’ve found this title to be a very useful read as it contains chapters submitted by various authors, presenting a range of perspectives – including one from the Student’s perspective by Carie Windham from Carolina State University.
Some excellent speakers and workshops – plus a comprehensive array of latest titles from many of New Zealand’s leading publishers combine to make this a very worthwhile event!

One thought on “NZRA conference – Invercargill

  1. I heard your key note speech and enjoyed it- very thought provoking. How do we greet new ideas without influences of prior learning and knowledge make it appear we have “horseless carriage” thinking?
