On the twelfth day of Christmas .… Well, you know how it goes.
Here comes the holiday break, and this is a perfect time to catch up on those EDtalks you may have missed out on during the year. I thought I would compile a list of my favourite five for this year (a very hard job indeed). Please feel free to leave your list of favourites in the comments.
In no particular order:
Khoa Do, Young Australian of the Year, film director, screenwriter and teacher, sat down to talk with us at ULearn2012. He tells stories about his life, and at the same time reveals important educational ideas. Ideas that reveal the depth of the principles and key competencies of the New Zealand Curriculum.
Donna describes how her school has approached one to one laptops. She provides us with many questions about how this innovation challenges teaching and learning. Donna explains that this approach is a shift away from "this is how I’ve always done it to this is the way I’m going to do it"
Mike Hogan, principal at Prebbleton School in Christchurch, describes how he and his staff made the decision to ask for help with their tikanga Māori programmes. Mike explains the steps they took to identify their needs, get help, and start making changes to teaching and learning.
Tamara Bell challenges teachers in English medium schools to increase achievement for Māori students by teaching te reo Māori. Tamara works for CORE Education as a National Facilitator for the Blended eLearning team and an Online Facilitator for Te Manawa Pou Te Reo Māori Online.
Professor Guy Claxton, Co-Director of the Centre for Real-World Learning and Professor of the Learning Sciences at the University of Winchester, was in Christchurch recently delivering the 2012 Graham Nuthall Lecture. After the lecture CORE Education's Keryn Davis had the chance to ask Guy about the key messages he had for teachers wanting to deepen learning and build learning dispositions.
