EdTechTeam Summit & New Blog Labels to align with Professional Standards - keeping our Enviro programme relevant and exciting

PS1: Treaty of Waitangi
PS2: Professional learning
PS3: Professional relationships
PS4: Learning-focused culture
PS5: Design for learning
PS6: Teaching

Look out for these new labels on Blog Posts that link to the new Professional Standards for teachers.

Teaching as a profession is constantly changing and evolving especially in the digital age as teachers who only teach 'Googleable' content become quickly irrelevant.  Sunnyhills Teachers are spending the first two days of the school 'holidays' at the Google Apps for Education Summit.  I'm looking forward to implementing new digital practices to ensure our Enviro programme stays relevant and exciting.

How do you want to learn in Term Two?

Kaitiaki o te Tohura - exploring a Maori perspective to end our sea studies

This week our  Kauri Whanau akonga are using The Whale Rider by Witi Ihimaera to explore the Maori perspective on whales and our connection to the sea.

Have you seen the movie adaptation of The Whale Rider? It's great whanau viewing for older children.
