Cuddly Kiwi goes to San Antonio, USA

Cuddly Kiwi lives the high life!
Cuddly Kiwi, a cousin of Mini-Dylan and Mr H are on a global journey to a really big computer conference in San Antonio in Texas, USA. They stop at a Starbucks for a quick coffee along the way. They heard that Tiny Ted has been sighted and we hope to have some photos before too long.
They all got into the airport at around 7.15pm Central Standard Time
As with all bloggers and geeky people Mr H got all the cabling sorted out at the hotel...
Enough time to fire off this blog post before looking to eat!
Cuddly Kiwi and Mini Dylan 'The Dragon' have a quick chat while preparing their journey to NECC08 in San Antonio on Saturday 28th June. They have let Paul into some of their travel plans, however some things they are keeping very much to themselves.

One thing that they are hoping to do is catch up with another friend of theirs, Tiny Ted who has been travelling the world since leaving Wales in October 2006.

Running for President of USA

When I go to San Francisco for the Adobe Educational Leaders' Summit I hope that I don't get mobbed by political interviewers.

Mini-Dylan visits the Sydney Opera House

Mini-Dylan and I have finished the workshops at Adobe and are now having a look at the tourist spots of downtown Sydney.The Sydney Harbour Bridge is something that you can recognise all over the world. Mini-Dylan found a good spot to look at the view.
Mini-Dylan and I posed in front of the Sydney Opera House. It is a magnificent building.
We walked through the Botanic Gardens and Mini-Dylan liked this puff-ball plant as their colours matched perfectly.
On the way home we stopped at a wonderful viewing spot for a look at the Opera House at sunset from across the harbour. Miss K couldn't resist taking this video to show her day.

Mini Dylan and I are in Sydney

Mini-Dylan and Miss K are in Sydney and we are at an Adobe Educational Leaders get together. Adobe is paying for it and we are very exciting.
We are going to be learning more about lots of exciting things that we can use in the classroom and to communicate with other children and teachers around the world. We have just been given a set of Adobe Creative Suite 3 Master Collection which is a heap of extra cool software applications- all for free.

We are going to have a ball.

This is what I have been doing!

Today Allanah, our ICT facilitator, came into Room 1 to teach Miss W and us how to make a slideshow in Kidpix, using photos. We are going to make a slideshow about Wild Hair Day all by ourselves. Today we made a background for our page. Look at how clever we are.

While I was at Upper Moutere School today Rachael W took a photo of me helping the five year olds have a play with Kid Pix. Then she blogged it on her class blog. Do have a look. It is a really cool new blog for 2008. Leave the class a comment. They would love to hear from you.
