About me: living independently in the Blue Mountains and loves sharing information and teaching people either in my classroom or online or a combination of both. Promoting: social justice, a corruption free government, immediate action to ameliorate climate change, and permaculture design principles form the basis of my life.
Currently I'm paid to teach English as a Second Language for TAFE using Skype and the iSee Virtual Classroom. My students have my undivided attention for 1 hour using Skype: we see and hear each other speaking, we share our screens and our information on our computers and we can chat and send photos. Yesterday I chatted with my student living on Elcho Island and spoke with her child and her mother and then guided her through an audio assessment. Below is what I learnt when looking for images:
It’s cold and wet but here in the Blue Mountains much of the year is spent preparing our properties and fire trails for the inevitable fires; whether nature in origin, back burning gone wrong, poorly maintained electricity poles and wires or arson.
