A Student Teacher's ePortfolio

I am a student teacher at the University of Southern Queensland, doing my Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning (Primary). This blog will be used to record my thoughts, ideas and achievements as a student teacher. I would also like to receive feedback from educators and students and make connections within the education field.

 

Throw the Starfish

I am Deputy Principal in a Primary School in Sydney. My blog is updated weekly or sometimes more regularly to discuss issues in the school or expand on what I have put in our school newsletter. I upload fun videos for the students that look at education and also discuss issues surrounding bullying, reporting, etc. Hopefully the blog will grow to become a key aspect of communicating with my school community.

 

The Beginning

Darce:  I began this blog when I was a graduate teacher and I have been periodically updating it over the past 6 years.  I am making a commitment in my new role to try to continually reflect on my pedagogy and leadership through this blog.  I am the Head of English at a specialist Science school.  The whole building is open plan and every class is team-taught so I am currently focusing on leading teams in open plan learning spaces, designing effective and differentiated curriculum for open spaces and professional learning in these areas and others. 

 

Solo Performance-Music Matters

As I write I am wary (yet sometimes guilty) of adding to the glut of techno-hype.

Braindump

heymrmont

I teach middle school maths in Perth Western Australia

I am a disruptive innovator and at the moment I am a digital pioneer (warrior/champion/fool) at my school.

I created braindump as a split off from the blog I was using to keep parents informed about activities at school. Colleagues were unhappy with me doing a brain dump with parents. They felt it needed to be more professional. So I created braindumpto pour my thoughts into. As it has turned out, I am now lobbying intensely for e-learning in my school so I am not using it so much as a braindump but as a lobbying tool. I still keep my parents blog at heymrmont. Of course having to divide my attention between the two blogs means that I don't keep either as well as I would like. But I'll get there. If you are interested, I also keep a personal blog that has a mixture of stuff including some stuff about e-learing at pilgrimage.

ICT in the Classroom

My name is Suzanne Arnott, my blog was originally created to record my journey during Teacher Professional Leave in 2006-07. It has since evolved to record my continuing journey.  I also created a wiki for the TPL project ICT Powertools.

I have developed a self paced project to help teachers become more familliar with Web2.0 tools, to try and get them more engaged and wanting to use them. The Redback Project.

I am currently eLearrning leader at Sandringham College in Victoria

 

jennip's Journey's

 

Hello my name is Jenni Parker. jennip's Journey is the gateway to my Blogs. I'm relatively new to blogging however over the past month or so I've been getting lots of practise! The blog I am currently working on is focused on Connectivism, the CCK08 MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). Through this course I am making some wonderful "connections" and learning lots of new stuff.

 

I live in Perth and I teach computer software and training and assessment (TAA). I have just accepted a contract to write, develop and deliver an online course on Workplace Training for the Business & law faculty at Edith Cowan University (ECU).

I live in New South Wales and am keen to explore the use of ICT in education and sport. Most recently (November 2008) the blog has been my forum for discussing CCK08(Connectivism and Connective Knowledge). I administer a wiki for the canoe slalom community in Australia.

 

Brave new world

http://tsheko.wordpress.com

Tania Sheko: As a teacher librarian and previous teacher of English and LOTE in secondary schools, my interest is in engaging students in lifelong learning using emerging technologies. This blog began as a process journal of my Web 2.0 course through SLAV, and now it's a place for me to document my learning, ideas, thoughts and finds, as well as hopefully attract other people's comments.

 

Visual Arts@Taylors Lakes Primary School  is the Art Classroom blog I began in mid 2008. Yvonne Osborn is my name and I have been a Primary Visual Arts teacher for 22  of my 33 years of teaching. I currently teach part time at Taylors Lakes Primary School which is in Melbourne, Victoria. I enjoy ICT as my second passion and during 2009 I hope to help more teachers begin blogs and personally learn more by networking and sharing. I am also hoping to get an interactive whiteboard in the Art Room. I live in hope.

Selling Gold For Cash

Tom Benjamin

I am Senior Researcher, Centre for Learning Innovation, NSW Dept of Educ & Trng. I focus on applications  of games, virtual worlds, W 2.0, and multimedia in education. The approach I've taken is do it yourself 'toolkits' for busy teachers that allow them to create their own projects in a fraction of the time with requireed by conventional methods.

I've set up 'international radio and tv stations' and a 'movie studio' on the web as demo's and experimental platforms and outlet for my research. Indeed, we ended up calling it www.e-chautauqua.com to embrace our myriad interests. It follows the old time Chautauqua mix of music, adult education, and reform speakers. The e-Chautauqua model could be adapted to schools. Astronomy was a popular Chautauqua topic and I use it because it is not in most curricula and my sites counteract the misinformation that students get from colour-enhanced photos and animations. My podcasts are associated with International Year of Astronomy and Global Astronomy Month but go up on my private websites to speed up the process as these ‘rough, quick’ versions demonstrate techniques teachers can use to make their own science documentaries. You’ll find my IYA 2009 pod/vodcasts on my 'international and radio stations':

www.tv-tom.com ; www.radio-tom.com; http://www.movie-tom.com ;

 My projects are by definition primitive because the object is to show that things can now be done in a matter of minutes or hours –ie- I use puppets as well as voice-synched avatars instead of tedious claymation, band in a box instead of synths or instruments ... etc . One thing I have achieved is remarkable search placement success for exposure.  If you type ‘tv tom’ or ‘radio tom’ into a search engine we’re usually on first page. Not bad considering no budget, studio on a coffee table, laptop producing the music, and competing with Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks Tom Selleck etc. not to mention Elvis. He had the best studios in USA, a host of session players and vocalists. His microphones are still regarded as $15,000 state of the art. I can't do his copyright tunes but my Evening by the Moonlight and Kentucky Babe can be compared for studio sound, done on a coffee table in my lounge. I'm happy to pass on these techniques.
