  2. Hi Claire,
    The purpose of the focus group is gather information from those who will use the PLANE platform so that we can define our requirements better. Hence there isn’t a lot of information to give you yet. All I can say is either watch this space or follow @planejourney on twitter for regular updates on our progress.
    Thanks for taking an interest and we hope to have you board the plane soon.
    Cheers

  4. Please contact me. This is an important, exciting, innovative direction. As the current NSW SPC elected Executive member with responsibility for Technology I believe it would be important for both myself and the current reference group to have more information on Plane and its potential. Thanks, Tracy

  8. Hi there, this looks like an exciting initiative. My school is the Australian International School in Singapore. I note you state on your blog this initiative is for NSW educators, and that you hope to broaden this. I believe we are soon to register with AISNSW, and teach HSC under NSWBOS. That's our NSW credentials! Are we able to participate? Linda
