Would You Like The Z Version Or The S Version?

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 08:50:20 +0000

If you want to be patted on the back for being a groovy, totally plugged in 21st Century educator, don't bother going to read Dean Groom's blog. But you value some authentic alternative views and some clever metaphorical language twisting like I do, then his latest post is well worth the read. I've been harping […]

Blogging In The Past Tense …

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 01:40:47 +0000

Ernie Smith on blogging: Perhaps the world has moved past the idea of merely having a webpage that’s your own, and nobody else’s. Perhaps we’re expected to do everything, instead, on social media or in someone else’s walled garden. But what if a lot of bloggers were never really in it just for the importance […]

The Best Teaching Happens in the “Most Disadvantaged” Schools – A Remix Post

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 08:46:19 +0000

Suzanne Cridge from SVA pointed to a 2015 post of Jennifer Orr's today on Twitter that awoke my brain from its holiday-induced inertia. And as I felt uncomfortable with the wording of her blog post title (but not its content or message) I have decided to unpack it a bit here by starting by subbing […]

And I Nearly Forgot To Mention FLL Junior

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 05:35:10 +0000

My last three posts have been focussed on my first foray into First Lego League and the students involved. But together with my fellow AP, Nicola, we also decided to get started with First Lego League Junior this year to broaden STEM enrichment offerings at Prospect North, and to cater for younger students. Nicola had […]

My FLL Journey – The Rookies Go To Nationals

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 12:07:37 +0000

On the Monday after the Regional, I proudly put our trophy up on the front office counter along with the certificate. Whether we decided next, our first FLL outing had a tangible memento of that team's success.But we had decisions to make - would we take the team to the Sydney National Championship? First of […]

My FLL Journey – The Rookies Go To Regionals

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 10:10:51 +0000

So, last night I tried to document my preparation for my two First Lego League teams. As I wrote in the previous post, I was a rookie coach with two rookie teams so I had spent a lot of time checking through documents from the First website but still really felt like the teams weren't […]

My FLL Journey – The Rookies Make A Start

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 10:04:53 +0000

In the past I think I have mentioned that I haven't always been that interested in robots, or even coding for that matter. On a personal level I just struggled to be interested in learning about then, even though on a professional level I knew it was important. In the previous few years at Woodville […]

This Was Really Nice To Get Today

It is very nice to be appreciated in this way - it really made my day! Also included this very cool mug:

Trying To Get Technology To Last

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 07:33:11 +0000

Over the past year, my 2009 model 15 inch Macbook Pro had been gradually getting slower and slower. I had upgraded it to El Capitan which is the most modern OS that a laptop of this vintage can successfully run. But it was struggling to load things, the coloured spinning wheel of death was becoming […]

Sphero SPRK+ Reviewed

Sat, 13 May 2017 09:08:20 +0000

In my new role here at Prospect North I have to provide some non-contact lessons for the classes here but the good thing is that it can be delivered flexibly and all teachers want it to be of a STEM or Digital Technologies flavour. This is good because it is an area I am pretty […]
