Kia Ora, Hello and welcome to my Manaiakalani Google Class OnAir episodes for 2020. I am a year 3/4 teacher at Pt England School, in Auckland New Zealand. I teach in a shared space with two other teachers and our learners access their learning through our class site and use a school supplied iPad as their primary learning tool.
The main apps we use are Explain Everything, Google Drive and The Manaiakalani Blogging app as these support our Learn, Create, Share pedagogy and allows learning to be designed by the teachers to meet the specific needs of the learners.
In these lessons you will see that teaching often takes place in small-groups which allows for differentiation based on individual learning needs.
Please feel free to contact me using the information below.
