|Thanks Danielle - fellow geek|
It seems appropriate that my first blog is based on the first #edchatnz conference and my first tweet. Inspired by the 'world famous in #educational worlds, @MissDtheteacher, Danielle - this one's for you, for encouraging me to dive in.
Keynote: Mark Osborne - What's YOUR story?
Digital Literacy - Learning and Social Implication Andrew Cowie
I planned to attend this session, however, I found it too hard to hear from the back. Andrew recommended:
- Digital Literacy Across the Classroom A future Lab Handbook
- The 8 elements of Digital Literacies
Instead, my mission was to observe HPSS students in action. What follows is a photo gallery of extended Hub time and Small Modules. I was able to chat with students and get a feel for where they are at with their learning. I was happy to point two students to #kidsedchatnz as they were trying to gain more followers.
|'Pimp my mousetrap' - a community challenge|
|Waiarohia - one of the three learning communities|
|I have a special connection with one hub coach, Martin|
|Nanogirl - impressive, inspiring, exciting|
|Transport Us - fabulous planning sheets that show their process.|
Students seemed engaged and focused.
|Keep your ideas to yourself - good ol' donut to get the students talking - loudly.|
|Movers and Shakers - making connections between harakeke and whanau.|
Wandered around, many students engaged.
|Apocalypse Now - huge module, with many conference attendees also.|
Those that had to report back, did well, although I am not sure how much the other groups heard.
