Graduation!

Here I am graduating with my Bachelor of Teaching and Learning from Canterbury University on the 7th December 2007 in Rotorua.

I passed my Graduate Diploma of ICT in Education, which was credited to my degree.

I am now taking up my exciting new position at Onslow College.

I will be an eLearning facilitator, with a brief to establish creative projects with staff and students. My e-mail is likely to be gavin.mclean@onslow.school.nz

Home is now in Belmont in Lower Hutt. We have rented out our lovely villa in Napier and are now up in the hills of Belmont with the Tuis and Moreporks.

Keep an eye out as I will be posting some of my projects!

Ray Kurzweil appeared on this TV show as a very young man in 1963. His secret was that the piano piece he played had been composed by his computer. Even in 1963, he was 30 years ahead of his time! He went on to invent the first digital synthesizer with Stevie Wonder in the early 1980's.
