I would love to share with you so if you let me just settle in this week as I have so much year 12 correction to do, can we be in contact next week. I am anne.mirtschin on skype or murcha on twitter or email to mirtschin.gmail.com
Thanks Lorraine For the good wishes. I am out of hospital and will commence intensive physiotheraphy on my new knee. we will be planning for our term 3. i hope to really be implementing podcasting across a number of key learning areas. i will be happy to share results wit you through classroom
I booked in a voice thread session with our ICT specialist when she gets back to NZ (on a conference in USA) so as soon as Im up on the play with that if we could organise something that would be great. School holidays here about to start so were looking at about another three weeks or so!
Dear Lorraine thank you so much for introducing me to this website it seems to be a great one. I believe that my students , and myself will learn alot from it. Thank you Lorraine for being a good friend
Yours Mubiru Charles
Got your message.Thank You it came through at 12:40am aussie time! No wories ,it is great to be able to share with someone else who is passionate about teaching , technology and how kids learn. unfortunately I am going to be a little indisposed over the next 6 weeks as I will be having a total knee replacement., but when i am recouperating i will certainly be following up on your threads. My years 5 & 6 gifte class working on the Jason project are using a wiki space called funlearningolmc.com. if you can find it through your browser i would be happy to invite you in it would be great for the children to realise that people all over the world can view their endeavours. Thanks John.
That would be awesome, I completly got my wires crossed and thought you'd come from Australia and left a comment on the blog! I was talking to our ICT PD administrator who told me that all US schools are on summer break and of course I forgot that! Our kids would love any interaction possible although truth be told them (and myself) are a bit green at the moment. I need to spend a few days picking through this site and looking at all the information so I can upskill but that would be awesome to get some interaction going. I've had a brief play with voice thread so that would be great.... thanks for replying so soon. Next week would be great sometime if your interested Im also a full time classroom teacher and the PE Co-ordinator its the middle of the rugby union season and Im rather snowed under with work...
Lorraine thanks for your quick log onto our class blog! Our students are Y7 which makes then 12/13 and we'd love to pair up with one of our classes. Im still getting my head around this site and a bit busy in the next few days but I will definatly make a move to get our students to check out your site. They'd love to get some feedback from Australia!
Gidday Loraine from down under!
I am an absolute novice at this! but it looks as though it is a great way of learning and allowing or should i say keeping up with the kids!
We use headphones in both our IT Labs as well as classrooms from our Kindergartens up. I will find the name of them and our supplier. Its great to be responded to so quickly.
I have 20 or so year 5 & 6 pupils who I would love to set up a shared class with . they are currently working on THe Jason Project ~ Monster Storms which is conducted World wide with Dr Rob Ballard (Titanic fame) and National Geographic very US based but we are attempting to put an Australian feel to it.
Are you interested in setting up a "sister classroom" project?
My kids would LOVE to talk with real live american kids!!! We are studying halloween at the moment so they would LOVE to speak to people who actually celebrate it! Our classroom blog is www.5leung.globalstudent.org.au
Thank you Lorraine. I looked at his impressive site. That is a great resource idea. I'm only sorry he isn't stopping in Guam on his next trip. I'm curious about how sailors navigated in the past and today. Thanks again.
