We are all partners in education

I am trying to imagine the impact of a kangaroo or a dolphin popping up in my classroom – or a real French cafe or the Eiffel Tower. Can you imagine? Sydneysiders don’t have to. They have already experienced augmented reality in their shopping centre and that was 3 years ago. Our mining industry uses augmented reality to connect those working in the mines with their families. A husband can be there in remote Australia but see his wife give birth to their child. That video really brought home to me just how important augmented reality developments are going to be for connecting people in a very real way. Ordinary people are doing miraculous things these days thanks to technological developments pushed by the gaming and tourism industries, coders, graphic artists, physicists, mathematicians. Arts and sciences. As a teacher, this can be overwhelming. So how do you do it? You don’t. We do it. We all do it. We are all now partners in education.

1. Be productive rather than busy – don’t just click or swipe around.

2. Be a team – with your friends,online friends, family, colleagues, students.

3. Make small, sure improvements– decide what they are.

4. Balance activities. Don’t just produce docs or videos -try a camera, a drone, a Play Station.

5. Be positive – love what you see and be glad you can now do yet another thing.

6. Notice progress – ignore what is not working. Go with the flow.

7. Create success – share an image, a video, a blog post, the fact you can now Skype.

8. Be inspired and inspiring – watch and learn…then share.

9. Be consistent in your approach – one thing at a time and slowly.

10. No excuses, follow your plan – yes, map out a plan.
