I have spent three days in the company of 1200 other, largely like  minded, teachers.  It was a stimulating and thought provoking event.  You can read my thoughts/reflections on my wiki.  It was great to meet some new faces and to finally meet some bloggers in person.

As broadcast on the sub-ethernet in ‘Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy’

“…the secret is to keep banging the rocks together guys!”

We will get there, and if in your moments of frustration, and you happen to have two rocks in your hand, ensure that a dinosaur’s head is in the way!  Makes a change from flogging and perhaps the message might get through a little more stridently to those currently not listening!  Not only that one of Tony Ryan’s tenets for success will have been met, self worth!

It was good to meet you up there David. Am beginning the flogging today…..Syndicate meeting. What I am looking forward to is using the Twitter to hopefully stay in touch with some NZbloggers a little more closely as we bang our heads against the walls of our school. Hopefully we’ll not feel quite so isolated.

Likewise Simon. The important thing now is for us all to keep those channels open, twittering, blogging, skyping whatever. See you in Rotorua in February?
