Sharing the Journey – a Japanese visit

We recently hosted a visit, of several educators, from Japan. The Japanese visitors were visiting a number of schools across Australia to see technology implementation in education. This was a great opportunity for our teachers and students to showcase some of the excellent work that is occurring across the school. The visitors were particularly interested to learn about our K to Year 6 iPad Program.

The schedule below provides a snapshot of the experience provided to the visitors.
*10:00 – 10:30 Meeting with the Principal and Technology Coordinator – Regarding our iPad Journey
Meet the teachers – show and tell with Classroom Teachers
*10:30 Curriculum Coordinator – using Itunes U for Professional Development and to deliver content to students in classrooms
*10:35 Year 3 classroom teachers using Edmodo to connect home and school
*10: 40 Year 4 classroom teachers – hands on using Nearpod to structure a lesson
*10:50 Year 6 classroom teachers – Creating a project on Notable Australians using Creative Book Builder, using Explain Everything to provide feedback
Classroom walk around
*11:00 Year 3 – Presenting a Mathematics project using Book Creator
*11:15 Year 5 – using Creative Book Builder to record observations in Science (Micro Organisms)
*11:30 Year 1 and 2 – Popplet (on living things), Explain Everything (to record an explanation), Comic Book (using punctuation)
*11:50 Library – how eBooks are managed and delivered to students, using QR Codes as a library tool
*12:00 Concluding

The visit really provided an opportunity for teachers and students to demonstrate the great success of the 1:1 iPad program. It also reflected how much we have grown the learning and teaching model, regarding the integration of technology, since the implementation of our iPad program.
