About me

Kia Ora,

I am a primary school teacher currently teaching at St Joseph's Waitara in Taranaki. I am trained in mainstream and bi-lingual teaching with a passion in Te Reo, Kapahaka and Sport.  I have 4 children aged from 15 - 9 years old and we are all actively involved in various sports and teams within our community.  My wife of 14 years has been a pillar of strength in everything I do.

I have joined the VLN as a part of our school wide focus and look forward to the journey ahead.

I hope I can be of some use to someone else within this forum.  I say that while crackin up at myself :)

    Welcome to the iPad group on the VLN.

    Did you guys have an iPad hui today??? :-)

    There are lots of great resources to be found here particularly in the discussions and bookmarks.

    Please have a good look around and join in the discussions.

    Let us know if there is something you would like particular assistance with.

    Kia ora Mike, nice to talk to you today and welcome to the VLN.

    I am here to support you and help you get the most out of the VLN community.

    I see you have yet to join a group already; maybe I could suggest some groups to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    You might like to join the "Getting started on the VLN" group, here you will find a wealth of tips to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    If e-learning is your thing, you might like this group too. /groups/profile/118255/enabling-elearning/ There are several more e-learning sub-groups you might like to join too for on-going conversations.

    Every three weeks we put together the e-learning round-up on the blog, it is well worth skimming through to see the latest discussions and links, /blog/group/118255/all
