The day I learnt how to reflect on my practice with Edufolios

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2021/03/11/the-day-i-learnt-how-to-reflect-on-my-practice-with-edufolios/

I’m trying out Edufolios.  There’s a woman called Selena Woodward who’s walking me through how it all works.  She’s telling me that I shouldn’t start with the standards.  How crazy! Aren’t I here to learn about how to work with them? Ok.  so today, in my year 9 English class i ran a new activity […]

Year 9 – Walking Through POV Exercise

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2021/02/03/year-9-walking-through-pov-exercise/

Last week, our faculty teamed up with the HASS department and we observed each other.  See this post for details.  One of the pedagogies that really caught my eye as I observed my colleague was something called a walk through.  Mr McMillan took an event from history and asked his students to walk in the […]

Running STEM PD for The LEAH STEM group.

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2019/08/10/running-stem-pd-for-the-leah-stem-group/

I am regularly asked to run professional development days for schools and in the July holidays I was asked to work with the LEAH STEM Action group in the Adelaide Hills. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them to explore technology through Multiple Lenses.   I ran three sessions with them covering: Speaking Pedagogically ( […]

MIEExpert Forum 2019 – Day 1

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2019/06/04/mieexpert-forum-2019-day-1/

Today I have had the pleasure of taking part in the first day of the Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert (MIEExpert) forum for 2019. The day had a packed agenda and meant that I heard from two amazing speakers: Dr David Kellerman and Dr Bron Stuckey.   Both of these academics have been working closely with […]

Mixed Reality Viewer and Paint 3D

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2018/08/15/mixed-reality-viewer-and-paint-3d/

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 […]

Using shared iPads with One Note and Teams (Digital Security Protocols)

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2018/08/01/using-shared-ipads-with-one-note-and-teams-digital-security-protocols/

At Flinders we were lucky enough to have had some recent investment in our IT resourcing.  The “Slab” of iPads we have access to has been updated and it now contains the iPads which support apple pencil.   6 Years ago when we fought hard for our first set of iPads I was very excited about […]

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 […]

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 […]
