Bringing the learning home (Australian Learning & Teaching Council)

The countdown is on!

So it’s 3 weeks until I leave for the USA and I couldn’t be more excited! The amount of paperwork, the number of meetings and appointments and the constant anxious waiting is over and the adventure is about to start! Every single signature, application, email and planning is forgotten because it’s going to be SO worth it.

Where is everyone else heading?

I’m heading to Wisconsin, USA. It’s currently minus 21degrees Celsius – that’s going to be a little different…

Good luck to everyone embarking on a new adventure this coming year. Can’t wait to read everyone’s stories.

    HI — Wisconsin it a lovely city (in spring and autumn anyway) .. but yes, bitterly cold in winter. Are you going to Madison? Or somewhere else?

    Try to take as many photos as possible which are representative of the freezing conditions — and how the American’s adapt to the extreme conditions.

    Bye the way — did you try to upload photos the last blog you did? There are two question marks as icons at the bottom of your post — so I am wondering if you had difficulty uploading something? let me know — and I will try to resolve the problem.

    Best wishes – safe travels…

      Yes I did try and upload two photos, I thought I just didn’t know how haha, I couldn’t find how to do it, I googled it and everything!

      I will be sure to take millions of pictures!

    Hi Kyran

    Once you’ve clicked on uploading the picture — and a bar line moves across the horizontal column — and shades the column with % figures, e.g. 13% moves to 28% etc —finally the bar line FINISHES at 100% …. you MUST go down to the bottom of the page and click on INSERT INTO POST.

    KEY ISSUE — don’t click SAVE … click INSERT INTO POST.

    get back to me if you have problems…good luck.
