AWAPUNI SCHOOLOUR ICT LEARNING JOURNEY
Town & Country Cluster
Our VisionTo raise student achievement by engaging our learning community as connected, confident, learners through the collaborative development of a personalised and sustainable e-learning ecology.
In 2009 Awapuni school were accepted onto the ICT contract for2010-2012. We are in a cluster with eight schools, our cluster name being ‘Town & Country’.
Our journey begins at the 3-day conference called ‘Learning@ school’ held in Rotorua on the 24th February 2010. During the conference we met other members in our cluster and we discussed future goals and planning for the contract.
The Principal-Stephen Soutar and Lead Teacher-Raina TeTure attended the conference. The course enhanced both Principal and Lead Teacher knowledge in terms of ‘e-learning in education.
State one important aspect gained from the conference:Principal - How To Create and Deliver Memorable Presentations presented by Sharon Carlson & Tara Fagan
Lead Teacher – Powerful Learning Journeys – Using Digital Story Telling within an ePortfolio to show the learning process presented by Ian Fox & Lenva Shearing I really enjoyed learning about how to create an ePortfolio of a child’s learning progress. It was a powerful presentation on how to community the process of children’s work through ePortfolios. Voicethreading was one attribute of this presentation that I would like to implement into my classroom.
Terms 1 – 2 Progress report
Progress report continued
Where to next?
•Three laptops were up for renewal. We decided to change from PCs to Macs. The laptops weren’t ready for use until the morning of Friday 14/05/10 which meant the Lead Teacher and principal were without laptops. Now the issue is familiarising ourselves with the Macs for the first time and what is compatible with our server e.g. synchronising etc.
•Familiarisation with Macs and use with our intranet•Investigate installing wireless internet•Review the internet filtering system already in place to be more user friendly to our needs•Surveying of teachers needs•Grant applications for computers•Ensuring more participation from teaching staff other than the Lead Teacher•Upskilling the teaching staff by means of the wiki and the professional readings etc… available to us.
