Tomorrow’s WOW2 tomorrow: Over the Top Educators from Down Under

Tomorrow – Tuesday is going to be a great show over at at 9 pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time. It will be Wednesday morning for our friends in Australia but they are going to take the time from their winter holidays to talk to us about the great things that they are doing.

Here are four of our Over the Top Educators from Down Under, if there are others out there who we didn't invite, consider this an invitation to join us and share the best practices from Australia with the rest of the world.

Graham Wegner – Teaching Generation Z – He is really the inspiration that put this together — it was totally his idea and I appreciate his working to figure out the time. Graham is great and I love learning from him. He did a phenomenal job with middle school peer review for the Horizon Project. and I'm dying to learn more about him.

Judy O'Connell – Hey Jude – Another blogging phenom, you need to check out the toolboxes she's been writing about on her blog lately. A must read in my bloglines!

Jo McLeay – The Open Classroom – uber-writing expert who has inspired many of us to know that writing and blogging is an excellent form of writing to be taken seriously.

Jason Hando – Clever Learning – I first met Jason because of his phenomenal questions that he asked during the first Connectivism Conference by George Siemens. He is doing some exciting work with professional development 2.0 this week that he will talk about.

These are just four of the amazing educators from Australia. We hope to continue to include more teachers from around the world. If you have suggestions, let us know!

Looking forward to the opportunity, Vicki – I was thinking of whipping up a few Aussie trivial questions to challenge the hosts!! Here’s a couple to help you on your way:
What is a lamington?
What Aussie sport is nicknamed “aerial ping pong”?
Which Australian state was formerly known as Van Dieman’s Land?
Name two Australian egg laying mammals.
And finally, where did the saying “A heart as big as Phar Lap’s” come from?
Your dedicated readers can give you hints!!

WOW (pun intended)! You have a great line-up. Do ask Jason how he saved the day during the tech problem-plagued maiden show on Monday. I was so thankful! There were some really great people showing up – the community support is humbling. Glad to have you back!

Hi Vicki, I too am looking forward to the show. So excited when I got your email as I had forgotten. But what a great time slot Graham has organised for us. See ya tomorrow. I know the answers to 4 out of the 5 questions Graham asked but I’m not telling!
