This month I published another book in the iTunes Store Red Words. This is the 2nd book in a series of 6 that I am working on for our early years students to use on their iPad. I am passionate about creating resources that are easily accessible and targeted to students specific needs, particular at a junior level.
I am part of the MADE (Movie and Digital Excellence) team, a national wide event to celebrate our students learning through technology.
"Students love to use digital media to discover, explore and communicate learning. Much of the fantastic work completed by students has an audience limited to their class peers, sometimes a school assembly, and occasionally to a proud parent who has popped into class. The MADE Awards seeks to establish an outlet that enables students to show their work with a much wider audience, to be proud of their efforts and to share their learning.
Over the past eight years we have had a fantastic range of student work and the Awards finals evenings are a wonderful celebration of excellence in digital media." (from the MADE awards website which I am responsible for).
All of the teachers at our school are onboard encouraging their students to consider sharing their learning experiences through this event. I support students and teachers in classes by role modelling, guiding and facilitating the learning of new skills by challenging current ways of thinking and sharing digital content.
