#Series 1 History and Past Hangouts


Ok, if you have scrolled down this far then you may be curious about where this came from. It grew from unconference contributions to the Australian Computers in Education Conference 2012 through ACEC Unplugged. We had a long road to get to this point with the generous and boundless help of online friends and an understanding family. You can retrace our journey by going to our old website at http://acecunplugged.wikispaces.com

Inspired?

external image mzl.wmzczjbp.175x175-75.jpgIf you enjoy these live broadcasts then you must check-out the inspiring Edtech Crew show podcasts by the talented Darrel and Tony. The Ed Tech Crew podcast is a weekly podcast about Educational Technology. You can even download an app to keep up with episodes, send feedback and view the crew's Diigo links. This team inspired us to have a go at recording a weekly live broadcast for the ACCE Learning Network. When we get around to it we may have a go at podcasting our work. For running these live meetings we took our cue from the Astronomy Show. I'll get around to posting some details and the workflow that we use.
