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.
This HoA as part of the GEGNZ community had as special guests Dorothy Burt and Fiona Grant who focussed on blogging and their experiences from the Maniakalani project in Auckland. Lots and lots of really useful tips and tricks with resources and ideas to follow up on.
