About me

I am a primary trained, secondary science teacher. I have always taught in low decile secondary schools with a mainly Pacifika and Maori student group.

Love the challenge, the culture and the warmth of the kids I share my days with. I learn far more from them than they will ever realise.

    Kia Ora Marlene,

    I would like to invite you to join the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Group
    /groups/profile/126400/universal-design-for-learning

    The UDL group is a facilitated space with a wide range of discussions and resources. You may find these interesting as I see you are a member of the group "Personalised Learning and Flexible Learning Spaces".

    Have a browse around the discussions. I suggest a great place to start is to watch the video UDL at a Glance:

    I look forward to connecting online with you

    Ngā mihi nui, nā
    Roxy

    Kia ora Marlene, me again...I see a loooong way back you made a comment in the thread on Project Based Learning @ /discussion/view/691210?orderby=latest about secondary schools using a project-based or inquiry based learning process "with NCEA assessment as the end focus".

    I thought you might be interested in some stories emerging about Inquiry based learning in secondary here: [/discussion/view/813419]

    as well as a recording of a webinar on Secondary curriculum, NCEA and e-learning [http://bit.ly/1bclTyB]: 28 August. Guest presenters Steve Mouldey and Tim Gander shared their experiences of integrating e-learning into effective learning design for students in a secondary school context - with specific references to implications for NCEA. You can also follow the conversations in the discussion thread, NCEA and e-learning | Designing for success [/discussion/view/828262]

    Hope this helps for now :-)
