"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…"

Paul Keown commented on Rachel Roberts's blog post CoOLs - Communities of Online Learning - A double edged sword?
"Excellent post Rachel. I agree people should not be surprised. On the other hand many have probably dismissed the whole idea thinking "it won't happen on my watch so I won't worry about it." I haven't looked at all the…"

More Bouquets: Two Secondary Schools

Case Study Three: Hobsonville Point Secondary SchoolHobsonville Point is a very new school – established in 2014 so now in just its 4th year. Its roll of 348 (2016) is 65% Pakeha , 12% Maori, 12% Asian and 4% Pasifika. It could be argued that because a brand new school starts from a blank slate that it will look closely at current and even future thinking and build a culture, a curriculum and an education based on current best practice. It seems that this is true of Hobsonville Point. The…See More

Some Values Bouquets
