Last week on ICTs in English:
Barbara Reid shared their ICT PD cluster wiki:
In our clusters, we are encouraging teachers and students to create tutorials for others. The wiki has a mixture of tutorials off the net, as well as ones created by cluster members. .
Alison Cleary also shared another great resource "produced by teachers for teachers":
- 'At Learn it in 5, you'll learn what is Web 2.0, and strategies
for using Web 2.0 technology in the digital classroom - all
in 5 minutes or less' - produced by teachers for teachers.
This week I would like to highlight the ICT strategies page on English Online.
And in particular the e-learning as Inquiry page on TKI
Considering that as part of NZC implementation we are all expected to teach using an evidence based inquiry cycle (see below), a resource like this one is very helpful!
"All schools need to do a couple of things - they need to design and implement a school curriculum and they need to teach using an evidence based inquiry cycle that informs what they do and monitors the impact of those decisions." - Chris Arcus (NZC Curriculum Manager) - Edgazette August 2009
