The GEG NZ Hangout on Air – GAFE Summit is aimed at showcasing how the Google Educator Group for New Zealand are working to help other educators Learn, Share, Inspire and Empower one another. This hangout was part of a face to face presentation at the Google Apps for Education Summit held at Burnside High School recently.
The latest GEG NZ Hangout on Air – Maker Culture. This is our first hangout on air to involve students and we were delighted with the discussion and ideas shared. A huge thank you to Anne Batchelor, Liz Fairhall from Selwyn House School in Christchurch, as well as Bridget McKendry and her students from Fab Lab XcCH in Christchurch.
In this Google Educator Group NZ (GEG NZ) Hangout on Air we spotlight how the design thinking process can be used in education. Also three of our new Google Certified Teachers – Anne Batchelor, Alyx Gillett and Barbara Reid share how they are using a simple design thinking process to explore an issue they are currently facing within their educational community as well as their experience at the recent Sydney Google Teacher Academy.
I had the pleasure of helping out with the latest Google Educator Group hangout on air spotlight last week and I must say, it was inspirational stuff! Michelle George and Karen Belt from Pt England School and the Manaiakalani Trust showed us their approach to accelerating literacy learning for Year 1 students in a 1:1 environment using iPads.
