"Congratulations on you new job! Sounds interesting and challenging. I have a bit of experience with museum education and I think any 21 Century dealing with youth should have a drama/role play component to their programme. There is a bit to do in…"

Chromebooks for 6 & 7 year olds (cross-blogged from http://thebelbird.blogspot.co.nz/)

Our school is well equipped with digital devices, all of us believe strongly that they are part of teaching our students for their future. I feel very lucky to be offered the opportunity to have 1:1 devices for all my students, funded by the school. But as I have always said, it's not about the devices, it's not about me - it's about how can these devices be utilised in the best way to transform student learning?The introduction of these devices to my students coincided with us starting up a…See More

Monika Kern commented on Hazel Owen's blog post Advances in technology and connectivity mean more people are working from home - would it suit you?
"I have had several positions now that involved working from home, but currently I am back in the classroom. There were many things I really enjoyed about working from home - flexibility to determine when and where to work, the chance to have a break…"

Minecraft and Literacy - midpoint review (cross-blogged from http://thebelbird.blogspot.co.nz/)

You would be hard pushed to find any parent or teacher who have not heard of Minecraft. An open-world sandbox game, it was first released in November 2011 and has since developed into the second best-selling video game (behind Tetris). According to Wikipedia, as of June this year over 106 million copies have been sold, across a variety of platforms. About 20 or so of these have been purchased by me...Minecraft has fascinated…See More

Long time no post and what exciting times these were! In January I was appointed as Education Manager at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds which is my first appointment into museum education. I am loving every minute of it, and the learning curve has been huge.

What makes an effective Innovative Learning Environment (ILE)? (cross-blogged from thebelbird.blogspot.co.nz)

Posted on December 10, 2016 at 15:01 0 Comments

The term Modern Learning Environment (MLE) has been replaced in NZ during 2015 by the OECD's term Innovative Learning Environment (ILE). Much of the original discussion was about the space and the furniture within this space, but increasingly it is recognised that it is what happens inside the space that matters+Michaela Pinkerton's May 2014 #TeachMeetNZ presentation summed it up…

Why choose Chromebooks for students in Aotearoa / New Zealand? (cross-blogged from thebelbird.blogspot.co.nz)

Just recently I was asked this question again, and it was interesting for me to reflect on it from a teacher's point of view, in addition to my ideas as facilitator.

Kia ora, Moinka...and I am absolutely delighted that you have joined the Ethos Online Community! You are bringing so much with you...and to think about quilting as an analogy - you have many of the patches, as well as the needle and cotton to help create a thing of beauty with the rest of the community. The design is something that will happen, organically, over time.

Please make yourself feel at home in this space (you'll recognise a few familiar faces, but otherwise folk don't 'know' each other) - please feel free to start conversations, jump in with comments, ideas and resources, and to ask questions. Welcome :) xxx
