Loreto 5 - Literacy unlocks to door to learning throughout life Loreto Normanhurst Kelly Tabbart

  1. 1. Loreto 5 Presentation by Kelly Tabart English Faculty Loreto Normanhurst 2011
  2. 2. What does this mean for our students? <ul><li>My vision for the English faculty is to further integrate ICT into our teaching and learning practices whilst improving our students’ basic literacy skills. </li></ul><ul><li>Former Secretary-General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan, once stated that “literacy unlocks the door to learning throughout life and opens the way for democratic participation and active citizenship.” </li></ul><ul><li>We need to ensure our students leave Loreto with the full complement of literacy skills required to facilitate their active participation in all aspects of 21 st century society. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Loreto 5 Proposal <ul><li>My two aims for 2011 were: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To focus more explicitly on the teaching of basic literacy skills across all parts of the curriculum using ICT; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To continue developing our Wide Reading program within the English Faculty (consolidating work completed during Loreto 5, 2010). </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>AIM 1: </li></ul><ul><li>To focus more explicitly on the teaching of basic literacy skills across all parts of the curriculum using ICT. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>There are two ways to achieve this aim: </li></ul><ul><li>1. The implementation and management of Spellodrome (an online spelling tuition program) into the English faculty in 2011. </li></ul><ul><li>2. The construction of a Literacy Hub that can be accessed from the English Faculty website on the Student Portal. </li></ul><ul><li>The purpose of this SharePoint site is to centralise all electronic literacy-based activities and resources to allow easier access for both students and faculty members. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Spellodrome
  7. 7. Benefits of Spellodrome <ul><li>This program has been introduced to all Loreto students in Years 7-9 and helps students build their spelling, vocabulary and grammar skills. </li></ul><ul><li>The overwhelming benefit of Spellodrome is that it is a web-based resource which is continually updated, therefore teachers have access to individual students’ progress and ‘real-time’ data. </li></ul><ul><li>Students also receive individual usernames and passwords so that access is not limited to school hours only. </li></ul>
  8. 10. Spellodrome <ul><li>Spellodrome is also beneficial for helping students to develop their literacy skills in preparation for annual Naplan testing. </li></ul>
  9. 11. Literacy Hub <ul><li>The Literacy Hub can be accessed via the English Faculty page on the Portal. </li></ul><ul><li>It contains resources and links to various websites that develop literacy skills. </li></ul>
  10. 12. Literacy Hub <ul><li>It is my aim that teachers from all faculties will be able to use these resources. </li></ul><ul><li>The Hub contains resources for students to open and work through on their laptops OR for teachers to use in the classroom. </li></ul>

  13. 15. <ul><li>AIM 2: </li></ul><ul><li>To continue developing our Wide Reading program within the English Faculty (consolidating work completed during Loreto 5, 2010) </li></ul>
  14. 16. Wide Reading site <ul><li>Located on English Faculty site on the Student Portal. </li></ul><ul><li>All students in Years 7-10 complete a two-week Wide Reading unit as part of their English studies. </li></ul>
  15. 17. Wide Reading Project
  16. 18. Additional ICT skills <ul><li>In addition to my own project, I have had an opportunity to develop broader ICT skills through my involvement in Loreto 5, including: </li></ul><ul><li>Interactive Whiteboard Resources ; </li></ul><ul><li>Microsoft Education Labs ; </li></ul><ul><li>PhotoShop; </li></ul><ul><li>Adobe PDF Reader and Captivate; </li></ul><ul><li>Audacity; </li></ul><ul><li>LAMS. </li></ul>
  17. 19. <ul><li>Thank you to the Leadership Team for providing me with the opportunity to develop my ICT skills. </li></ul><ul><li>Thank you to Ken, Cath and Donna for your ongoing guidance throughout the process. </li></ul><ul><li>Thank you to Graeme and Martin for your unwavering support and enthusiasm. Additional thanks to Lui, Karen, Danielle and Daniel for your ideas and the general ICT-related discussions we had throughout the year. </li></ul>
