Meeting the families
Tonight was AMAZING! My scheduled time to meet with the families was 7.15 to 7.30 but of course it went for a lot longer. I was delighted to see such a huge turnout! I was even more delighted to share my presentation then let the discussion evolve. What wonderful challenges, questions, discussion, ideas! I think it is invaluable to keep everyone as informed as possible and this is even more crucial during times of change. Our learning space journey and our BYOD option is really creating discussion, question and enthusiasm. We don't have all the answers yet. We are very excited to be trialing lots of innovative, collaborative learning opportunities. Our next move is to get our student wireless network up and running. We are discussing a school wide meeting with families to look at our technological short and long term plan. The next steps for me are to move towards a blended learning environment on the wiki and blog. Our wiki is now our communication point to parents through our 'notices' page. I have already had very favourable feedback from families with this ease of information sourcing.
