    Kia ora Koren,


    I like what you have said about it being just as important for teachers to learn through doing as students.  ANd yes, sometimes you just have to leap in and DO IT!  Planning is important!  The more planning that is done, the better prepared teachers will be, but how can we know that we are planning in the right direction unless we also have some practical experience to guide us?

    We are a member of the Kaikohekohe cluster (part of the Manaiakalani initiative0 and are currently trialling chromebooks with our year 9s.  Next year we will be fully chromebook for Years 9, 10 and 11.  We are lucky that this initiative comes with the full support of people on the ground in our school and PLD to guide us.

    This year our reading/literacy initiative has been the major focus of our teaching as inquiry.  i have started a leadership inquiry with our lead teacher for the Chrome initiative and this is proving to be very successful as we work through our trial.  I have used the model provided for us as NAPP members for our own leadership inquiries. Next year I imagine that the Chrome initiative will become the main focus for our teaching as inquiry and that the frameworks provided on these pages will also prove invaluable as we work through the year.
