MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I have just attended a presentation with Christina Preston, here "down under" in Christchurch, NZ. She invited us to join the MirandaNet! My mind is buzzing with the collaborative mapping concept. I have been a huge fan of brainstorms/concept maps in my classroom.
Currently studying for a Masters paper in "Best Practice in Online Teaching and Learning" to improve my academic understanding of online learning as well as increasing my skills with practical applications. My next assignment, I am going to use Collaborative mapping concept.
I teach in a multicultural secondary school; Hornby High School, which is located on the south side of Christchurch, here in beautiful New Zealand. My teaching subjects include Home economics and in the Learning Area Technology through the contexts of food and textiles. it is time for me to embed (e-learning hybrid model) more ICT in my day to day teaching. My school is beginning to make a significant move in using ICT tools in the classroom for a variety but obvious reasons. Some of us are more enthusiastic.
Our kids use a variety of technology tools eg cellphones, computers, I-pods etc they have a range of skills and knowledge that we don't utilise. To engage 21st century kids this is just another methodology to engage them and to increase academic performance etc and increase NZ's GNP.
