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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Using Word to Assess and Track Pupil Progress

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2012/07/31/using-word-to-assess-and-track-pupil-progress/

I’m writing this blog post with a certain audience in mind.   Over the past few weeks I’ve heard several things that have caught my attention. Things that I think I can help with. They are: Teachers in the field don’t plan lessons so why am I doing a lesson plan I don’t really get […]

The Four Part Lesson Plan

Below is a piece I wrote for the pre-service teachers I was working with.  We were exploring effective planning and teaching strategies. Strategies that help students connect to their learning and encourage critical and creative thinking. The strategies I share assisted them to expand their repertoire of teaching strategies in both verbal and non verbal […]
