A great day of sharing and learning - educampchch 2014

Saturday 22nd November was a very hot sunny day here in Christchurch. And at the St Margaret's College Library,30 enthusiastic educators braved the heat to share their ideas, facilitate workshops, and network with others like-minded teachers.
Then later in the day some of us headed down to #Brigettes in Merivale for lunch and more networking. If you didn't make it to #educampchch this year, don't panic, your name is probably on an email list. If you haven't signed up on the Christchurch Connected Educators data base then sign up now HERE

Here's a glimpse of what happened...
Allana Taylor from Springston Primary share tips on creating a class blog. Here's
Allana's brilliant class blog

Blake Luffy @blakeluffy (Amuri Area School) and Jill Pears@jillpears (Linwood College) ran a workshop on  programming using Scratch.
Bridget Compton-Moen @BridgetLCM (Selwyn House) shares how she uses Twitter with her students to share their book reviews and contact other enthusiastic readers. She has helped her students set up #kidsbookchat where they share their reading choices and ask for other students' opinions.

Matt Nicoll @mattynicoll(St Andrew's College) also showed how he records his lessons and then upload the videos to his blog. Fantastic example of rewindable learning.  Here's a link to Matt's blog.
