In June/July this year a group of 28 educators from across Australia travelled to the US on the 2011 ACCE ISTE Study Tour. The group comprised a very broad section of educators--primary, secondary and tertiary classroom teachers, ICT coordinators, managers, private consultants and regional office managers. The government, catholic and independent sectors were all represented. The networking within the group was one of the most beneficial outcomes of the tour. Many new colleagues were gained and friendships formed. The Tour offered fantastic opportunities to further their knowledge and develop connections with a road range of practitioners in the area of ICT in Education. As well as attending a conference of more than 17,850 educators and exhibit personnel across five days, there was also the opportunity to visit schools and corporations, and to network whilst travelling and over meals.
