This is to request comments and corrections for my talk "Teaching
Sustainable ICT Competencies with Tablet Computers", in the Sustain IT
stream of the World Computer Congress 2010, Brisbane, 12 Noon, 23
September 2010: <http://www.tomw.net.au/technology/it/green_ict_skills/>.

"The first globally available and accredited Green ICT course for
computer professionals commenced in January 2009. Sponsored by the
Australian Computer Society, as part of an international program for
professional education, the course is also now run at the masters’ level
by the Australian National University and several other Australian and
North American institutions. Course designer Tom Worthington discusses
how e-learning is used with mentored and collaborative techniques to
deliver professional education on mobile devices."

first year's experience setting the global standard for green ICT

ps: Just to give it a local topical spin, I suggest the new Australian
Government could use these techniques to provide skills via broadband in
regional Australia. The PM mentioned skills, regional development and
broadband in a recent interview: <http://www.pm.gov.au/node/6909>
