OZeLIVE 2016

Again this year I participated in the OZeLIVE! Online conference which ran from February 26 – 28 2016

This year there were 19 interesting and inspiring webinar sessions. I attended most of them during the conference and intend to catch the ones I missed by listening to the recordings.
The recordings of the sessions are available at http://australianeducators.ning.com/recordings-2016

I presented a session titled Persona Dolls: Dressed for learning.
Clothes can be used to illustrate nationality/ethnicity, religion, historical period, character/occupation, customs and lifestyle, dress style preferences, and also as an analogy for other characteristics (eg De Bono’s 6 Thinking Hats and De Bono’s 6 Action Shoes)
My friend Judy Murcutt sent me photos of her collection of dolls from many different nations to help illustrate the session.
As well as discussing the use of Persona Dolls and other dolls in education we talked about the resources available for teachers who want to participate in Diversity Week and Harmony Day.
Gifted Awareness Week Australia 13 – 19 March 2016 activities were also mentioned.
