I’ll be a keynote speaker at the semi-annual Australian Conference on Educational Computing April 6-9, 2010 in my adopted 2nd hometown of Melbourne, Australia.

2010 marks my twentieth anniversary of working in Australia, beginning with the introduction of laptops into schools and ACEC was the first conference I ever keynoted back in 1992, coincidentally in Melbourne.

I’ll also be presiding over a “Breakfast with Gary Stager” workshop in which we’ll explore some of the “Best Educational Ideas in the World” on April 6th. You may register at http://acec2010.info

The organizers of the conference asked me for a video advertising my participation. It ain’t Scorsese, but here it is.

I can’t wait to join you at ACEC 2010 this April 6-9 in Melbourne as a keynote speaker. 2010 marks my 20th anniversary of working in Australia and Keynote debate at NECC 2009ACEC ’92 was the first conference I ever keynoted – in Melbourne coincidentally! I’ve been the keynote for at least one other biennial ACEC Conference (perhaps 2), since.

I know how many of my Aussie, Kiwi and other non-American friends had wished they could have voted in US presidential elections – the world might be a better place. However, there is one US election where your vote counts.

I am a finalist to be a keynote speaker at this June’s International Society for Technology in Education Conference (ISTE) in Denver. A keynote speaker will be selected by you, the voter!

This is quite the honor!

The other finalists are Peter Reynolds, Chris Lehmann, Alan November and Jeff Piontek.

Voting ends on Friday January 15th (US time). Don’t miss out! Help put the “I” into ISTE!
