Today my guest is Nick Johnstone, science teacher and education innovator.

Nick and I go WAY WAY BACK. This photo is from our last day of high school in 1987.

Anyway, these days Nick is Head of Science at St Lukes School in Bundaberg and he’s talking to me tonight about one of his favourite subjects: Information, Communication and Learning Technologies in Science Education. Nick is using Smartboards, mobile phones, wikis, podcasts and blogs in this classes and explains the educational benefits of using the latest technology in the classroom.

If you’re interested in learning more about the use of ICT in education, check out Nick’s site and TPN’s Education Transformation podcast.

Become part of the G’Day World conversation.

I’ve created a couple of groups inside Second Life. You can now add yourself to the following groups:

  • Friends Of G’Day World
  • MODM
  • The Podcast Network
  • If I knew how to link directly to those groups from here, I would. But I don’t. So for now you just need to search for them in-world. Or you can add “Cameron Switchblade” to your friends and check out the groups I belong to.

    If you’re a member of Facebook, you can ADD ME AS A FRIEND and then ADD YOURSELF TO THE G’DAY WORLD GROUP.

    You can show your love by buying me stuff from my Amazon wish list.

    Add me to your Twitter account.

    You might DIGG the show.
