2011

September Hui

Dates: 19th and 20th September
Venue: Wharerata - on the Tiritea Campus. Lovely setting and great food.
Focus: As requested at the previous hui, the focus will be on effective use of ICT. Bring your laptops please.
Preparation: As part of the milestone feedback expectation, please prepare a 10 minute presentation about what your cluster has been doing this year to achieve the three goals of NZC, Leadership and building Māori success as Māori. Please use the tools and strategies you identified in your action plans to provide the evidence you need for this. You need to bring the presentation to the hui in a digital format - powerpoint, document, photos, video, audio, whatever, as we will load this up onto your own page on our regional wiki as part of the learning on day one.
Programme:
Day One
I have approached a couple of NLC cluster principals and asked them to share their work.
  • Marama Stewart at Pukeokahu School will talk about using the free Google Apps for Education suite of programmes instead of paying for websites and servers
  • Mary Cuming and Nicki Fielder from Apiti School will talk about how their students use e-portfolios and how these connect to the school curriculum
  • **Liz Harrison** at Ramanui School will share the work she has done to engage her community in creating better learning opportunities for their children
As well as these, I will provide a hands on workshop to help you to improve your Web 2.0 capabilities. With Nicki, Mary and Marama around to help, we should be able to get everyone feeling comfortable and competent.
Day Two
Sharing evidence of progress towards cluster goals.
Cheers, Heather


May Hui

Planning

Here's a copy of the programme for the day. You will have received this by email too.
We've managed a real coup by getting Dr Jenny Poskitt to share her work in the areas of moderation and assessment, and having heard her present this already, I know it will be really useful to stimulate your thinking.
Please remember to come prepared to share your cluster's work to date. This project is all about networking and learning from each other, so we will make use of the amazing combined intellects in the room on the day :)
Cheers, Heather

Hope you've all managed to return your faxback forms by now so we can get the accommodation and food confirmed. Please get your meeting dates for the year set with your cluster before you come to the meeting so we can include these in your action plans. We will try to get around to all of you at least once this year so this will also help with our planning.
Choc fish to Wendy from NIS for being the first to get her cluster info into the google doc.
