Teachers, please share reflections with other staff members concerning any major events you have attended as P.D. this year.  Say how it has contributed to your thinking about teaching and learning, engaging students through ICT, culturally appropriate curriculum or innovative methods for teaching.

    Great!  Please also share an example of how the BP Workshops have impacted on the way to teach/what you do differently, in the classroom?

    Sounds great Pam.  Could you give us an example of some search sites you have found useful for students, and/or how you used them to 'teach' some content/ideas?

    Great focus Thomas.  I spoke with Rupert at my PD on Friday 15th and he said,"suspensions do not have the impact, but going to the whanau/homes and building a partnership toward student-learning that makes the difference.  This is a consistent message I have been getting, leading me to make the time to connect with whanau rather than just action consequences.

    Great session from Sue Winters (ePrincipal) on Interview techniques (with students and whanau).  This was to assist us with another major learning goal - to get student goals/profile data into KAMAR based on improved interviewing strategy, and KAMAR's new Profile tools.

    The major thing I remember is the necessity to 'hold your tongue', after you have prompted with a key question.

    What else do you remember?

    Good point!  After all, that is the whole intent - to build their mana and help them achieve.
