Room 8 - What have we learned so far?

Room 8 have been learning some amazing Cybersmart skills this year. Today we did a brainstorm about what we have been learning about.

Well done Room 8!

R7 - CyberSmart - What have we Learned so far?

Today, Room 7 had a discussion about what we have learned so far in CyberSmart this year! We were amazed by all the knowledge we have received and acted on! The children in Room 7 were so excited about all this knowledge, that they wanted to add their own ideas - check out their blogs to see all their learning!

Well done Room 7!

The Power of 'Yet'

Paula Were: Literacy Professional Development

Its Acceleration Term!

  • We have had 500 hours already!
  • Focus on priority and target learners.
  • Back Map planning - start at the end of the term (where you want to be) and work back to where you are now.
  • Modelling your thinking - "What do I do now?" "It sounds boring, what can I do?"
  • Connecting back to what they know - always building on their foundation...
  • "Not Yet!" Carol Dweck - 'The power of believing that you can improve'
  • Sesame Street - Janelle Monae - Power of Yet!

How to show Kawa of Care!

Kawa of Care? How do we look after our netbooks while at school?

Our scriptwriters wanted to try something a little different this time! We brought some props and tried to inject some humour into our movie. Our scriptwriters wanted to create the idea of "CyberSmart Angels" who came to help Toma be CyberSmart.

We have had mixed reception to this movie. We are now looking at going back to refilm as our audience of Tamaki Primary find it funny, but we didn't think our audience of the wider world would understand our concept...

What do you think?
