Steve Hargadon has created a Ning dedicated to discussions about the future of education (http://www.futureofeducation.com/).

In his introduction he states: This community is devoted to providing an opportunity for those who care about education to share their voices and ideas with others. It’s a place for thoughtful discussion on an incredibly important topic.

One of the most exciting features of this website, is the terrific range of free downloadable podcasts of interviews with some of today’s most innovative educators. Can I particularly recommend Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach on Educational Social Networking.¬† Sheryl speaks with such passion, wisdom and knowledge … and a whole lot of sense!!

Also check out the discussion forum for some very informative and thought-provoking comments.

Syllabus amendments, text lists, exam and assessment changes, new services and support materials – all are published first online¬† on the Board’s website. Also visit K-6 BOS at http://k6.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/.

The best way to be sure you miss nothing is to subscribe to the Board’s email news alerts – see http://news.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/index.cfm/official-notices. Email alerts are simple and free. You can subscribe to all BOS announcement or just Official Notices. Official Notices are about important Board rules, procedures and syllabus changes. The last Board Bulletin for 2008 reminded schools that from 2009 Official Notices are only published online. BOS recommends to have at least one email subscriber in each NSW school who can check for Official Notices and other important information from the Board.

As well as the email service, you can get Board news updates at-a-glance by grabbing the Board’s RSS feed for your favourite News Reader. In the righthand frame of the Official Notices page you can subscribe to every BOS news item or just the ones relevant to you.
