Conference Video

During the school holidays as you know I went down to Christchurch for an ICT conference. While I was there I was asked about the things we do on our class. Here is what I said..

Other videos about education can be found here.

Mini-Dylan Tours New Zealand

On the way back from the Christchurch Conference we saw a little snow on the Lewis Pass so had to get out and have a little play. Mini-Dylan had never seen snow in NZ before so rather liked it.

And then he got to go up into the cockpit of a plane to see what the world looked like above the clouds. Miss K took a video to show you what it looked like.

Dolphins in the Abel Tasman

This weekend I showed a bunch of overseas visitors around a bit of Nelson and thought we would go out on the water in the Abel Tasman. While we were going to Anchorage we got ourselves surrounded by a pod of dolphins. I am in awe of dolphins and thought you would like to take a look as well.

Here is Miss K down in Christchurch for a computer conference. I made a poster to share the sorts of things we do in our classroom.

I was a finalist in the 2008 Microsoft Innovative Teacher Awards. I got to go up on stage to receive my prize- a web cam and a wireless keyboard. Very cool. When my name was called everyone went, 'Woohoo!!' which was fun.
