Having presented twice this morning at the July Microsoft Edumeet it was great to kick back and be firmly in the learners seat.  I joined a session with the fabulous Megan Townes.  The focus of the workshop was Microsoft Paint 3D, Mixed reality viewer and the photos app.  It’s interesting to see how Microsoft are […]

Improving Planning for 2018

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2018/06/20/improving-planning-for-2018/

At the end of last year I invited my students to complete a questionnaire on their time with me and their learning.  The university has a questionnaire but the results of it don’t really give me anything I can use to develop my planning or teaching for the next year.  This questionnaire I sent was […]

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2018/06/19/taking-teams-seriously-framing-our-learning-with-0365-and-teams/

I’ve finished marking the first summative assessment I am involved with in educ9404.  Whilst still on my mission to be responsive to learner need, it’s important to be able to look at the data these assessments show me and consider whether my changes to the teaching program have had any effect.  Usually, in the high […]

Back in July I attended my first ever Microsoft 365 course.  During that course I got excited about the possibilities of using OneNote Class Notebook to help me meet some of the teaching targets I’d set for myself earlier in the year.  I’ve been using OneNote Class Notebook with my students (EDUC9404) for  the last […]

Over the past two days I have had the pleasure of taking part in two separate Microsoft Education workshops.  Having worked with Microsoft, as a result of my work on Edufolios, I approached them to see if they might be interested in running some PD here in Adelaide.  I organised the venues, the teachers (and […]
