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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Learning when you’re leading – sometimes it gets super uncomfortable

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2017/10/16/learning-when-youre-leading-sometimes-it-gets-super-uncomfortable/

I’m writing this post to reflect on a workshop that I taught today.  Having spent even more time with educators at a recent Microsoft Meetup I felt super inspired to push my OneNote learning a little further. I spent a good two hours prepping my two hour workshop today.  I added in Microsoft forms where […]

Collegial Learning Through Social Media – Talk standards in Facebook Messenger

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2017/10/04/collegial-learning-through-social-media-talk-standards-in-facebook-messenger/

Before I post an evidence piece publicly, I love to lean upon my collaborator pals to read it and help me make sure I’ve picked the right standards.  Even as someone as experienced as I am with working with them, sometimes i just can’t see the wood for the trees!  For example, in the below […]

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 […]

Unpacking the Digi Tech Curriculum – Paula Christopherson

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2016/07/24/unpacking-the-digi-tech-curriculum-paula-christopherson/

On June the 3rd I attended a Professional Development session hosted by EDTECHSA.  Paula Christopherson flew into to Adelaide and shared her insights into the Digital Technologies curriculum with us.  It was very interesting to hear how slightly differently the Victorian department for education have chosen to work with the Australian curriculum.  It actually made my […]

Jolly Phonics

https://edufolios.org/selenawoodward/2016/03/23/jolly-phonics/

What’s the fuss about Phonics? Phonics isn’t new it was taught for a long time  The connection between reading and writing thought to be separate skills.  There have been several different theories over the years about how best to learn to read / write.  One is synthetic phonics, like Jolly Phonics, The other is the […]
