The Department of Education and Training’s Schools Online Curriculum Services (SOCS) has several very interesting projects on the go. Most exciting is the news that Marc Prensky will be in Perth between May 28th and 30th to ‘conduct a series of workshops and keynotes that explore online technologies and their application for innovative education’.

Marc is best known for coining the terms ‘digital immigrants and digital natives’ and for his groundbreaking work on game-based learning. It should be an awesome learning experience. No information on costs or venues at this time, but you can contact the SOCS team at
