  • Town Hall and conference centre Christchurch 2009
  • Innovation, collaboration and quality education, these themes ran strongly thru the whole conference- in Breakouts, workshops spotlights and Keynote speakers. Also being creative, passionate and inspired.
  • You can lead a child to the internet but you can’t make it think!
  • Well I was off to a great start with this Breakout as it made SOLO finally make sense! This was about SOLO and Rubrics Use Life cycle story
  • Braincaps- put on you can think to your computer. Going to the edge of your thinking Google how well do you know it, use it? Wonderwheel? Timeline? Googlesquared, wave, translate?Push the buttons have fun! Hoe innovative are you- in actions not just in words?What evidence do u have of this? Whats the most innovative educational practice you’re ever observed? Best Practice, Next Practice, Zest Practice- energy and pizazz, inquiry generated, co-creating and evolving, losing sight of the shore.
  • Treat people always how you would like to be treated, care about and for them
  • Humour many benefits- releases endorphins, improves mental health, increases retention, positive climate
  • Many elements of the course we did at Fairfield college with Karen but excellent to remind and refresh 1)2 sins- activities and coverage, coverage at the expense of learning 2)Why am I learning this? Must make sense to them and have meaning Why do I need to know how to read? Ask STAFF 3)Who decides what is important to learn in your class? Empower children what do you want them to leave Insoll with? 4)Use skills in context- science-school rubbish analysis, saving coastal land Sometimes we teach what we need to learn!!!
  • 5) You are not the font of all knowledge- let them find out for themselves 6)Make them argue their case-prove their point,looking below the surface
  • Children as storytellerscreates imagination and creativity Learn how to tell stories Start with familiar/fairy stories Show characters- grumpy weird silly Feedback- children give to each other
  • Oral language base of indigenous cultures Rubric-Bullseye Rubric (Draw on Board) Feedback from children is very powerful- provide to each other In pairs- what each other did well, needs to improve on C transfer knowledge into other learning areas
  • Show Book Talk to notes
  • … establishing the competencies as the central core of the new curriculum The NZ Curriculum is considered one of the best frameworks in the world Children now have less competencies than before must specifically teach them C have poor decision making skills- more/too much choice Concepts become contexts- can be applied anywhere Learning to drive is a concept then it becomes a context when u can drive anywhere Personalised learning relevant to C
  • Intuition is the teaching of body language- have to teach this to children Our world view interprets our future KC take a huge amount of time and effort but worth it Rubric KC’s with C Teachers must understand the purpose of the KC’s
  • Bet you’re glad to see this slide lol University of Waikato Possible selves- we find a balance between the possible selves we hope 4 against the selves we are afraid of becoming eg bag lady alone
