Thinking ahead

Today was the last PLG for the year and today we had a look at what makes a site great and how it should be accessible and visually appealing to not only our learners but our whanau and community as well. We look at the importance of making learning visible to not only us and our students but everyone that we want to engage with. We discussed how visible learning fits with making our learners connected, ubiquitous and empowered. Todays session looked at how all of these elements fit within Learn, Create and Share within Manaiakalani kaupapa and pedagogy.  


Our final activity for today was to look at what we are going to be doing with cybersmart in our classes next year when we don't have a specific cybersmart lesson for us as well. I have been fortunate enough to learn so much from Fiona and also others in my team, school and CoL. I will use these ideas in my own teaching of cybersmart next year. As a team at Pt England we have also discussed how we need to make this an important element of our teaching and have this as something that is timetabled in each week so that our student's are getting exposure to this and know what it is to be a cybersmart student in this day and age. My plan for my teaching is above which I will be trying to use in my teaching next year.
