It’s a joy to be back at the QSITE conference where I’ve had the pleasure to keynote several times. Because the most recent was 2007, I’m looking forward to sharing how strategies like The Edge-ucators Way and CEQ•ALL have blossomed into NextEraEd. By the way, QSITE is the Queensland Society for Information Technology in Education and my sessions are on September 29 at St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School, south of Brisbane.
