An Open Letter to the Professional Communities of Australian Council for Computers in Education (ACCE)
Williams, Michelle
Australian Educational Computing, v20 n1 p8-10 Jun 2005
This article presents an open letter to the Professional Communities of Australian Council for Computers in Education (ACCE). In preparing for this article, the author looked back over the contributions of other fellows in publications and ACCE Minutes, and recognized that each had led the ACCE family in this endeavor. Creating direction was the primary goal of the original constitutions and charters of CEGs (Computer in Education Groups) and ACCE when computers in schools first arrived, and her reflection while writing this article is that one needs to again give prominence to this goal. The author stresses that it is through the deepening professionalism of Australian teachers and the conversations members have in the profession that will count now and in the coming years. In closing, the author appeals to CEGs and ACCE to continue to use online community tools and services to maintain momentum in the professional community and to develop strategies to develop high-order conversations that enable the leaders in associations to articulate maturing perspectives, opinions, and conclusions.
