This startup aims to be a local, Brisbane-based and education-focused version of the G20 (yes, we believe education is that important). We aim to find out what happens when up to 20 innovative thinkers gather to meet, talk and listen… for 60-90 minute gatherings that dare to thrash out the future of education and how to make it better.
Is Education as important as economics? Can diverse educational minds working together create surprises? Can the solutions we need to make Education better be found?
If you answered yes to these, then you are a prime candidate for E20. It’s a mind-space startup with the goal of making education better, one gathering at a time. Visit E20bestof.education to learn more and find out about how to share your story of best education practice.

iBook: 'The iPad is not a PC'
Description: "The iPad is not a PC. As obvious as that sounds, if the only computer you've ever used was mainly a box on a desk, or ran a desktop operating system with a physical keyboard attached, its only natural that the ways you attempt to use a new device will be dictated by the old paradigm. Instead of just sticking with such an approach, Apple Distinguished Educator Jonathan Nalder has created this book to look at the different ways that the PC and iPad have been designed to work. The book then details new ways that the iPad can be used for creating workflows, rather than just work, to help readers maximise their iPad investment."
'The iPad is not a PC' has reached number one on the Australian Technology eBook charts, and been featured by the @iBooks twitter account. Download for your iPad HERE.
