Tracy's Inquiry Presentation

  1. 1. Kia ora koutou katoa Welcome to my Presentation Room 9 • room9bloggersmanaiaview.blogspot.com: Tracy Allen-Whaitiri Room 9, Manaia View School June, 2009
  2. 2. My Personal Inquiry... • My Inquiry topic is essentially about how I have integrated Room 9‘s Reading Programme into our Class Blog. • I chose this topic because it was a way in which to push out my own learning boundaries which meant... • Having to develop and explore new ICT skills in order to facilitate this - and at the same time... • Using my new skills and creative imagination to hook students into their Reading and ICT.
  3. 3. #1. What did I Define the Task: need to do to get started? ‘How can I integrate my Reading programme into our class Blog?’
  4. 4. #1. What did I Define the Task: need to do to get started? Which was... ‘How can I integrate my Reading programme into our class Blog?’
  5. 5. First, I needed answers to some key questions... ✓ What ICT resources were available to me? ✓ Where could I source/access them from? ✓ Who could help me find them and show me how to use them? ✓ Which resources were the most useful and user friendly? ✓ How was I going to integrate them?
  6. 6. #2. Seeking out #3. Where the information and... exactly, will I •People Power: find it? ✓Beth:ICT P.D. - Podcasting, Q.T. Movies... ✓Janice and the Pararahi Team - ✓Wendy & Donna S. - Hyperlinking, Websites, Slide Shows... ✓Marilyn - Useful junior websites •Engine Power: ✓Researching websites for ideas
  7. 7. #4. How have I used it? Gleaning ideas from the Cluster Share Day and 1-1 Professional Development e.g. ✓ Voice Thread, Typography, I Can Animate, iMovie, Podcasting, Quick Time Movies... Shared Book: ✓ Experimenting, sifting and sorting The Monsters’ Party through each of these options and deciding on: ✓ Podcasting for Shared Book and ✓ Basic Sight Words
  8. 8. How have I used it? continued... Quick Time movies to record those ‘Magical Learning Moments’ ✓ I decided to experiment by using the Quicktime Movie application to film children reading their journals - individually. ✓ I wanted to see if a Quick Time Movie was a potentially useful tool to hook students into I their reading in some way, shape or form.
  9. 9. ‘Magical Learning Moments’ Journal Reading Benefits: 1-1 teaching, student/teacher bond, motivational - maintains interest, exciting seeing themselves live on screen, lifts interest in reading and ICT (Ministry of Education, 2003).
  10. 10. How have I used it? ...continued Kidpix Slideshow ✓ Kidpix Slide Show- Making use of this application for Reading responses/Basic Sight Words: Experimenting - integrating the teaching of mouse control and how to use Kid Pix, with how to use the ‘pencil’ to write basic sight words e.g. The, you, it.
  11. 11. Benefits: ✓ Adds interest and stimulation to learning basic sight words. ✓ Any intrinsic learning is transferred back into the identification of sight words during reading and will hopefully stimulate learning in other curriculum areas e.g. Shared Writing, Shared Book, Maths. ✓ Hooks children into their reading and ICT - acting as a catalyst to promote and provide opportunities for children to develop an interest in electronic concepts of learning through self-exploration and discovery via relevant and meaningful contexts (Ministry of Education, 2007). ✓ Promoting ‘Can Do’ attitudes... If I can do this, what else am I capable of??? ✓ Switching on a ‘light’ and keeping it on!!
  12. 12. How have I use it? continued... Hyperlinking Hyperlinking to online activities via our class Blog Site: room9bloggersmanaiaview.blogspot.com:
  13. 13. Benefits: ✓ Hooks children into their reading and ICT. ✓ Acts as a catalyst to promote and provide opportunities for children to develop an interest in electronic concepts of learning through self-exploration and discovery via relevant and meaningful contexts (Ministry of Education, 2007). ✓ Provides opportunities for engagement with hands-on experiential learning where children can work and learn autonomously on open-ended activities at their own skill level and own pace (Ministry of Education, 1994).
  14. 14. Room 9 ‘Our Work’ Slide Show: MVS
  15. 15. Synthesis: ✓My presentation ✓Hand-out of my presentation
  16. 16. Evaluation: Have I achieved what I set out to achieve for my personal inquiry? “How can I integrate my Reading Programme into our class Blog?” In some ways - ‘Yes,’ in other ways... I feel like I’ve really only just begun...
  17. 17. Yes! But... ‘Use my I have learnt at the skills, so I about... moment these don’t lose Quick Time are them’ Movies Strategies. Podcasting Now I need to ‘Can Do’ Hyperlinking turn them ‘Will Do’ Slideshows into attitude Screen Shots Knowledge. Operating a How will I ‘Watch Blog site achieve this Integration this..? Space’ into Reading
  18. 18. Reflection ✓ Being a pro-active teacher - getting started on the Blog is one thing... keeping it going is another. ✓ Pushing out personal learning boundaries in order to deliver a sustainable and student centred ICT learning environment... ✓ Balancing this with traditional teaching methods e.g. pencil and paper ✓ Going the extra mile - ‘walking the talk’
  19. 19. ‘If you can dream it, why not do it!’ ...So what are you waiting for... ‘Go Get It!’ 18
