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.

    Same here Karen. I did notice however at my Visual Art best practice some art teachers in high decile schools were not at all interested in converstions around barriers to learning for students in lower decile schools. The artist models we used to 'contextually' include students were far removed from the 'designer' artist models which may appeal more to the student who has been exposed to art history and appreciation in the wider world and not the student who percieves 'the marae' as their world.
