Paper - Non-Refereed

Microsoft Sharepoint is a very powerful and flexible Content Management System that most schools with a PC Server already have as part of their network. This presentation will demonstrate how it can be used to build a school-wide Intranet solution that services the communication resource needs of both Teachers and Students. This presentation will not only focus on how a school can manage its information resources but also engage students and allow them to communicate and collaborate in a social constructivist environment.
The Digital Songlines Environment (DSE), is cultural mapping software which is a 3D re-presentation toolkit that allows users to walkabout a virtual landscape, designed, full of stories, art works, culture and artefacts, presented in a non-linear, multilayered and interactive fashion as told (or sung) by elders and community leaders. DSE is a software program designed to be a cultural ark, where modern technology re-presents a culture and heritage, DSE serves as a cultural repository, a navigable mnemonic for cultural continuity, a place for people to interact with the landscape and others.
Now that QSITE has reached its twenty-fifth year of operation, it's time to celebrate, to reflect and realign itself according to the needs and interest of its members. QSITE has always held a significant place in ICT Education in Queensland and counted among its members the state's leading teachers in both a pedagogical and ICT skills/knowledge sense. We are the sum of so many people and their voluntary efforts over the years. Come join us for some healthy discussion about where and how we are travelling as an organisation, now and into the future.
From my experience as a specialist music teacher, Maori students appear to engage or engage differently when manipulating an artefact they have made themselves, and which belongs to their own culture. They do not necessarily have any knowledge of the instrument, its origins, its construction or its application in a social context. However, they relate to it as a learning object because it is part of their cultural heritage a Maori.
