Over the September holidays, I was lucky enough to be a featured speaker at the PEAK Phys Ed ACTivate Conference. It was held at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra with educators from around Australia attending.
A special thanks to Andy Hair (@MrHairPhysEd) & Aaron Gardiner (@azzalanche), who dropped into my 3rd Session for the day via Google Hangout to share with participants what it means to be a connected life-long learner. Below are the slides to my presentations, I've added a few extra videos to hopefully explain some of the slides:

DigiCon Spark is a series of mini keynote presentations by aspiring thought leaders set to inspire, enlighten and provoke. Each presentation takes on a similar style to a keynote with one take home message about a topic which the presenter is passionate about. Presenters will generate awareness, share big ideas and call people to action through short bursts of dynamic, powerful and motivating thinking. This is an opportunity for presenters to enlighten delegates with a rich storytelling experience and to build confidence in presenting in a lecture style format. Delegates will be inspired by a number of thought provoking presentations, with a diverse range of stories.
It was a great chance for me to reflect upon some of the topics of conversation in teaching and learning and relate that to my own personal experiences.
