What an awesome day at the EdTech Summit at Whangarei Girl's High School. We were all wowed this morning with a keynote from Jim Sill called 'The Beginner in You'.
There were lots of great sessions that followed. It was great to learn new ideas that I can use in my classroom.
Two things that really stood out from today for me and that I will use in my classroom next term are:
-Using google forms to create quizzes but breakout style and pick a path stories.
-The great learning apps available from the mathlearningcenter.org
I also went to a session on Scratch. I need to do a whole lot of playing in scratch (I have only used scratch jr) to learn more about this wonderful programme that will engage, inspire and challenge my learners. Love the CS First Coding Club idea and the wonderful tutorial videos.
Looking forward to another day tomorrow.
