Success and Potential

{Be warned, more questions here than answers. As in most my posts, this comes from the heart and from 15 years in the NZ education system - but I feel I never have enough time to truly get to the bottom of other people's ideas and research that influence my thinking so I am thankful for anyone who can 'put the record straight' or help me answer some of my questions.}In education in New Zealand there is a lot of talk about success and potential.

"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

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.

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
