On 26 and 27 September 1995 I attended a course on using the internet in education that started me off on my love affair with the internet and since that date I have been faithful. For twenty years I have used the internet on an almost daily basis.
I first started using the internet from home on a dialup connection with a Toshiba laptop in 1994. In addition to personal playing around I became a volunteer for Studentnet, an initiative of The Association of Independent Schools iof NSW. I was responsible for the primary english part of thier website that provided links to suitable internet resources for students in our schools. I had a great time finding and reviewing sites.
Working as a teacher/librarian with responsibility for IT I had many opportunities to indulge in online activities. Working in one of Australia's first laptop schools allowed me to share my enthusiasm for technology with some keen students. I integrated technology into my teaching at every opportunity.
Looking at some of the websites I created in the early days of the internet dredges up lots of memories. I am so annoyed that I cannot find a copy of my first family history site "Jill's Jigsaw".
