Recorded Keynote

View “It’s Broke – So Let’s Fix it!” Keynote

On June 16, 2011, I had the opportunity to keynote day two of the CEFPI Conference (Council of Educational Facility Planners International) at the Sydney Convention Centre. This was a fantastic conference in a great facility.  Fortunately the organisers secured InfoShare Technologies to record the keynotes.  Simon Gazey and his team have really done a professional job.  Over the years I’ve had a number of my sessions recorded or streamed and have never bothered sharing the result, but his time the production is so good that I feel their is some benefit in making it available.

The blurb for this keynote goes like this:

We are entering an era when a self-motivated student with broadband access can learn more than he or she could in school. Society has changed around us, undermining cultures focused on standardised outcomes and the myth of uniform excellence; in other words, a culture-like “school.” The world surrounding schools has moved from a “one-size-fits-all” mentality to one where digital customisation enables “all-fit-to-one’s-size”. In this new reality, learn about the four critical pieces needed to succeed and how you can get students and staff started.

If you’re really desperate for something to watch, I just came across this 2006 presentation recorded by the Computer -Using Educators Group of South Australia:
