Teaching Inquiry-2018

My inquiry  for 2018.

I have selected to raise the achievement  level of Maori students above 60% in science.

I teach 4 year 9 classes. In them there is a total of 19 Maori students.

 9 KRo-----  04

9 TTu------  03

9 Rmz ----   07

9 PSd------    05

At level 1  I have 3 Maori students in my class.

How am I going to raise the achievement level of the above students?

I have decided to use resources prepared my the ESOL teacher Mark in all these classes.

I will help the above student to complete these resources to a satisfactory level by giving them individual support.

Digital Fluency intensive-week 4

  • What did I learn that increased my understanding of Manaiakalani kaupapa and pedagogy?
  • What did I learn that could improve my confidence, capability or workflow as a professional?
  • What did I learn that could be used with my learners?  
  • What did I learn that could improve my confidence, capability or workflow in my personal life?Digital F

I learnt a lot about  Manainakalani kaupapa and pedagogy. All knowledge and experience I have gathered will be definitely helpful to teach my akonga to improve their achievement in all subjects they learn. It is very valuable for my personal improvement as well as to my akonga for  their future living once they leave school.
All what I have learnt boosted my confidence to be a confident professional in teaching.

We had the 3rd day of Manaikalani digital fluency intensive course today.
The following thing were learnt successfully during this time.
1. We learnt a lot of new techniques in using my digital tool. Now, I can  confidently teach my akonga  how to use this tool during their learning for all aspects of  learning. eg: graphing , discussions, recording etc.
Now students can be confident and should not learn these because of their teacher. They should be confident to do all aspects of digital learning with enthusiasm and enjoy learning.

2. We as teachers are confident to teach our akonga and scaffold them to achieve their best in classroom.

This course has been a very helpful to all teachers and my akonga in the classroom.

Lastly, I should than our lecturers Dorothy, Gerhared and Matt who did a very good service  in teaching us the best techniques.

The video below is about practicing Hang Outs" with  our colleagues.
We were discussing about presentation of ideas and techniques related to painting.
