Kia ora and welcome to my Manaiakalani Google Class OnAir episodes for 2020. This is my fifth year teaching in a 1-1 Digital learning environment and I am currently teaching at Pt England School in Auckland, New Zealand.
I teach year 7/8 students who use Chromebooks to access their learning. I work in a team of 6 teachers and we have different classes for different areas of the curriculum. You will see a range of lessons from each of these classes.
You will see me facilitate lessons to the whole class and to small groups. These groups often change as they are needs based.
This year I am focussing on generating more discussion and debate in my classroom.
