Helen Barrett: The "Hook" at Pt. England School


I'm in New Zealand visiting Pt. England School in Auckland, where they are implementing Google Apps and Blogger and where they developed a brand new Google add-on with hapara.com called Teacher Dashboard, which provides a lot of support for a teacher managing a classroom full of student GoogleDocs accounts (and soon Google Sites and Blogger). On Tuesday night after school, I participated in a meeting of the school's "hackers": a group of community members who have gathered together (over food and beer) almost weekly over the last 18 months to support a systemic approach to implementing technology in the school cluster: http://www.manaiakalani.org/
