Science Showcase video produced will show authentic learning process in Year 2

North Sydney Council have commissioned a film maker to document Year 2’s involvement in the water catchment environmental grants recently. This could be used by schools in the future to imagine learning pathways around grants and how the experience can be embedded into the curriculum.

QR codes - a great way to share student videos

At a community day to celebrate and showcase our science unit “Catching Water”, my Yr 2 students shared their innovations and videos via qr codes at their science stall. Visitors watched videos on both large screens and on ipads as they walked around the stalls. Many students, parents and reps from North Sydney Council environmental team took the take away codes home to watch later.

CASPA award of excellence received for commitment to professional learning

At the 2014 CaSPA Annual Awards, I received an award for commitment to professional learning. This followed my attendance at a Performing Arts Bootcamp. Here I was able to learn from the CaSPA team. This bootcamp enabled me to transfer film making as an authentic product for my student's learning.
