Year One

It often isn't until you step back from a situation that you can truly examine it. After being given the opportunity to consider my first year during today's PLG, I realised how much my practice has altered since I began teaching.

I have gained a far greater understanding of the Manaiakalani pedagogy and have enacted it increasingly over the year. I have felt my create tasks become more purposeful and I feel confident using technology to enrich the students learning. My confidence has also grown throughout the year and I have become far more assertive. Although there are still many aspects of my practice that I would like to improve on, I can see that I have made a lot of progress and look forward to having my own class next year.

Check out the video I made discussing how I use learn, create, share in my classroom:

  2. Kia ora Danni,
    Thank you for sharing your reflections on the year. What an incredible opportunity you have had being part of the Manaiakalani Digital Teaching Academy. This will be a fabulous resource for us as Facilitators to share with teachers new to the 1:1 environment. You have clearly articulated how Learn, Create, Share has been embedded into your pedagogy and the learning environment. Best of luck for your second year teaching!

    1. Hi Tania, thank you for your comment! It has been a wonderful opportunity; I cannot imagine going back to teaching without the technology and Manaiakalani pedagogy now!
