Te Rerenga School Who are we? 4 teacher school in rural Coromandel. Populated by students from beach communities of Matarangi, Kuaotunu and Whangapoua. Roll of 72. ICT contract Part of an ICT contract for the past 3 years Peninsula rural schools cluster involves Whenuakite, Coroglen, Te Rerenga, Tairua and Colville schools. ICT facilitator: Jan-Marie Kellow Advantages Has provided us with exposure to practical ICT classroom tools Encouraged collaboration between Coromandel schools in the cluster through networking days. Given us time and confidence to integrate technologies into classroom programmes.
Our session involves Exciting ICT tools we have used and found successful: Debby – Fotoflexer Steve- Activboard Anna – Voicethread, Glogster, Wikispaces, Penspace and other useful websites
ICT programmes Voicethread Glogster Te Rerenga School room 4 wikispace:
Voicethread examples Examples embeded to class wiki Year 4/5 class Dancing Matt. Objectives in centre of voicethread. Read from draft writing Year 7/8 class Swine flu. Opinion piece as response to NZ Herald article and swine flu extensive news coverage. What does it mean for us in Te Rerenga? Read from draft writing Year 7/8 class Writing evaluations. Oral responses (interview/teacher conference) to published work. Not completed, view from voicethread Sam
Voicethread Why use this tool? Opinion based, collaborative pieces Students hear themselves. Oral language development Interesting way to share and gain feedback. Once students have exposure it’s easy to use Wider audience for work Differentiation – meets diverse needs Meaningful assessment
Glogster Online interactive posters. Sound, visual, video, movement. Potential for language learning, presentation cross curriculum. Embed easily into wiki for sharing Class examples:
How do I teach these tools? Either myself or a student models with the data projector/activboard briefly to reading group. Use your experts! Pass it on (reading group/individual). Loop Recording time practice then read, classroom requires silence. Recording 3, 2, 1. Emphasize ruining it for others. Activities room. Setup laptop and microphone external. Integrated with guided reading programme. Let the children experiment, make mistakes and learn. Skills are transferable. You don’t need to know every inner working of the tool for it to work.
