ACE Connections CGEA 2007 Learnscope Project


Judi Gowing organised and facilitated a very successful NSW
Learnscope Project this year on behalf of the College.
The project:

 explore the issues around online and blended learning for LLN
students;
 explore a range of online freeware such as Wikispaces, blogs, e-
portfolios and e-journaling;
 access online learning activities and create assessment tools for
the implementation of the new CGEA;
 create a network of LLN practitioners;
 trial online learning activities and validated assessment tasks
with a target group of learners.

One of the last events organised for the project was a Regional
Learnscope day with visitors from QUT, TAFE and NSW Learn-
scope. We even had a couple of visiting lecturers on line from the
USA.
Vivian Evans and Judi Gowing set the online sceen as the conference started and the
first guest speaker was Anna Moulder from Regional ABC discussing the changes to the
ABC WEB site and how it will become an interactive site for all listeners. We learnt on
the day how to use Wiki spaces, MySpace and WEB 3 programs. What a wonderful
way to learn and stay in touch with students, tutors and peers.

College Art Show


On Friday, November 9th at 6:00 pm the
students of the Tamworth Community
College will again exhibit their works of art at
the annual art show. We are hoping to have
a larger venue this year but are still waiting
for confirmation of a location so at this stage
the exhibition will be at the college. For
those wishing to exhibit art or other items
they will need to be at the college by 10am
on Thursday morning.
