Dear Teachers and Pre-service Teachers
I am Dr Jenny Lane a senior lecturer and researcher at a University in Australia. I am an enthusiastic blogger @EduJen and the President of the Educational Computing Association of Western Australia (ECAWA).
Welcome to to the Technologies Curriculum Resources Blog
Thank you for visiting our community resource blog. We have set this up as a useful resource for teachers and preservice teachers. Technology is an important part of everything we do. We have a new Technologies Curriculum in Australia and it makes sense for us to work together to find and share the best most useful resources to use in our teaching. Please use the menu headings at the top of the page to find posts in different categories. We would love to hear your feedback so post a comment on a resource that you find interesting or useful.
I am an enthusiastic blogger. Community blogging is a great way to work together to benefit all of us and most importantly the students we teach. Please use this blog to build a set of resources and teaching ideas that we can all use as we plan our teaching in the technologies area. I look forward to seeing your postings and comments.

I would like to thank ECAWA the Educational Computing Association of Western Australia and ACCE the Australian Council for Computers in Education for their help and support in developing and maintaining these resources. I would also like to thank Sue Waters and the Edublogs team for technical help and hosting the blog on the Edublogs site.
