Instructions for Mission #001 - By Dr Ashley Tan
HI! I'm Dr Ashley, the keynote speaker. I have prepared 4 simple steps for you to complete.
Looking forward to your inputs and meeting you on that day!
Take this online poll, http://bit.ly/ssi-poll.
The poll will take about 5 minutes to complete and is about exploring learning opportunities.
I plan on using QR codes during my presentation. If you do not already have a QR code reader, download and install this free one, http://bit.ly/inigma-qr.
Here is a QR code to test the reader on.
Bring your phone for other interactive aspects of the presentation.
In the meantime, assist me in suggesting what you think some 21st century competencies are at this AnswerGarden, http://bit.ly/ssi-21cc.

Watch this 2-minute video on Personal Learning Networks (PLNs), https://youtu.be/hLLpWqp-owo.
