STUDY- Growing Up Gifted – Concepts of Intelligence, Giftedness, Talent and Talent Development

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2018/10/03/study-growing-up-gifted-concepts-of-intelligence-giftedness-talent-and-talent-development/

This post is my response to the “check your understanding” section of Chapter 2 of “Growing up Gifted” by Barbara Clark. The chapter focused on concepts of intelligence, giftedness, talent and talent development.  I chose to read this chapter as my son has recently been identified as a gifted child.  The school he was working […]

First week with Teams and Onenote – Scaffolding this new tool

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2018/07/28/first-week-with-teams-and-onenote-scaffolding-this-new-tool/

This week I’ve introduced my students to Microsoft Teams and Onenote. They’ve also had a little play with Forms as I used this to assess their reading and guide their thinking.  This post is to summarise my preparation, the actual delivery and the key learning moments from this first week. Scaffolding the Use of the […]

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 […]

Taking Teams Seriously – Framing our Learning with 0365 and Teams

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

One of the things that I found difficult last year, when using O365 (office 365) was finding away to tie everything together.  Teams looks like it’s going to solve that problem for me.  I spoke to IDS services on site, last year about being able to use it this year (lots of notice) and it […]

Adolescent mental health: supporting young people through anxiety, stress and tough times.

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2018/03/28/adolescent-mental-health-supporting-young-people-through-anxiety-stress-and-tough-times/

This evening I was lucky enough to attend a session by Little Lessons Australia with Kirrilie Smout from Developing Minds.  As a clinical psychologist, Kirrilie has worked with children, young people and their families and teachers for 20 years.  In the talk she gave, she explored the make up of a teenager’s ever changing brain and gave […]

My Learning from Marking Assignment Two: Connecting Technology with the Learning Areas

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2017/10/30/assignment-two-connecting-technology-with-the-learning-areas/

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 […]

One Note Classroom and EDUC9404

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2017/10/04/one-note-classroom-and-educ9404/

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 […]

SACE – Digital Technologies- Co creating Exemplar Materials

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2017/08/25/sace-digital-technologies-co-creating-exemplar-materials/

I had the pleasure of spending the day working with Nick Jackson, Rob love, Nathan Cini and Brent Blothwich brainstorming and working on creating an exemplar unit and resources for the SACE Digital Technologies curriculum.  This is a new course that will be replacing the Stage 1 Information Technology and Stage 2 Information Technology course […]

Discover 365 in the Classroom

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2017/07/13/discover-365-in-the-classroom/

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 […]

Bron Stucky – Got Game on!

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2016/09/26/bron-stucky-got-game-on/

I only managed attend one of the two fabulous days of this year’s Edtech SA conference but it was a great day. There was a real buzz to the whole event and the two key notes were really engaging.  Bron Stucky got the balling rolling as she talked to us about Games in education.  Her main […]
