Day 1 ITSC '09

Uploaded with plasq's Skitch!

Friday; I spent the whole day at the ITSC conference, at CSHS.

I signed up for the, Digital Literacy Workshop.

Day 1 was focused on podcasting.

I came away with several ideas for lectures and sharing of information. The best was one I learnt, was using a function in keynote to record a voice over on top of the slides. I also learnt you can add pictures and videos to podcasts, again the possibilities are endless.

The last session was a bit of a fizzer, it seeemd to be about making slide shows, and of course it was a little a tad too low for the year levels I'm teaching. I therefore left early and missed the dinner as well, I guess that I'll see some of the images and stuff on the the ali site.

Something that I gained from the keynote was the stats about the way people learn, and of course listening forms less than 10%.

Total hours of professional development eight.

What a day!

Well what a day. Saw some great art, and had a very relaxing day all round. Took comprehensive notes, and will copy and paste once we get home. Made a few pictures, but, all in all just soaked up the art. it was fun and some team building did occur. It would be great to do something similar at some point, in the not too distant future, let's hope the others feel the same!

Term 3 Ends and I've lost track!

Term 1 Holidays PD sessions

This term holidays just gone I undertook 2 PD activities over 5 days.
The first 4 days were spent shooting processing and proofing some film.
The second block of PD involved a 2 day visit to galleries in Adelade.
Then there was a 'bootcamp' run by Adobe, for their AEL and ACL members.

I spent 4 days shooting 10 rolls of 120 medium format black and white fils, which I then processed and made proof sheets of. [4 days]

The 2 day visit to Adelaide revolved around the Trent Parke exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia. The exhibition was many in years in the making and several years in the planning and was largely a reflection on his own life expressed using high contrast and grainy imagery made over the last 20 or so of years of his life. I found the layout and organisation of the exhibition inspiring. However the heavy handedness of the work became somewhat oppressive and hard work. The lack of nuance was like being hit over the head with a hammer repeatedly; and left m…
