The day focused on learning to develop our classroom site focusing on the users and the purpose of our sites. We talked a lot about why we make and use class sites and how having a clear plan and layout helps to make our sites effective.
It was incredible seeing the Cohort setting big goals and working hard to achieve them. I really enjoyed helping different teachers identify challenges for them and supporting them to overcome these. The challenged ranged from creating buttons to embedding content.
At the end last week I got some wonderful feedback from Kerry and the Cohort:
It was lovely to have you here with us this week on our Digital Fluency Intensive, thank you so much for coming and sharing your expertise. I think everyone now has their sites well underway and looking pretty fancy!
Robyn said you really helped her put things into perspective with how to organise and upload her iPad resources to her site, you'll probably hear from her if she gets a bit stuck. With your help Sue from Kawakawa was happy with the improvements she made to her class site and Dani left you a nice comment on her blog, click here for the full post
After looking at Clarelle's class site, I have gotten some ideas for how to link in Explain Everything activities to my slides and she is happy for me to use and adapt some of the activities accessible on her site - Thanks Clarelle!
I was really grateful for this feedback and for all the people who supported me and gave me this opportunity to share.
