An "Onramp" To Success In Literacy

Last year, Parkvale School had two classes trialling one to computers. The device we chose was a netbook. This has been successful with parent demand leading to four classes this year.

Near the end of the year Chrissie Butler from Core Education visited and filmed three short videos which focussed on the impact our classrooms were having on literacy. For two videos, Chrissie weaved stories around two students, Teva and Tyler. The third was about the 1:1 programme making a difference for all learners. They turned out great. The videos appeared on the Ministry's Enabling eLearning site. It's wonderful to see Irongate School and Kimi Ora Community School now on the site. C'mon the Bay!

Here are the videos below. I have had a few requests to view them and I thought it would be good to have them on the B.Tict blog. For our school, they have been neat to look back on as we continue our learning journeys. Thanks, Chrissie!
