Lead Teacher Day - eastnet Cluster

eastnet Cluster Wiki Agenda

Pinwheel Sharing:

I shared using google docs forms to create quizzes as part of a independent Blooms Taxonomy reading contract. See Mega 25 blog and take part! Also shared Quietube - a way of removing all the excess videos, comments etc from around youtube videos.

LR - Keynote hyperlinking.
KT - iMove '09 version to create Te Reo Maori lessons.
J - Scholastic Story starter
LR - Interactive news reader - CBBC


Coach role: being supportive, listening, paraphrasing, questioning, allowing teacher to come up with own ideas and solutions.

Trust and respect is necessary to allow coaching to happen in an effective way. Needs to be taken as a way of upskilling and developing good teacher practice and reflection rather than a negative.
**Able to video conference easily
**Easy pages.
**Owner logs in - but can make public and anyone can access and take part in.
**Would be good for cross class collaboration with the audio features.
**Can draw and write - shapes, stamps etc also

** Cannot change page without changing the page for everyone.
** You can delete other peoples ideas and comments.
