About me

I am an ambitious and motivated life learner. My life philosophy is to question everything. My teaching philosophy has grown from my previous experience as a yoga teacher. My outlook on teaching is that children do what you do and not what you say. The pedagogy borrowed from Singapore in 2004 of ‘Teach Less, Learn More’ resonates with me. This framework encourages educators to focus on the quality of the lesson and the integration of technology  as opposed to the quantity of learning.

I am energised by undertaking new learning experiences. Therefore I thrive in an environment of like minded people who are committed to their own journeys of teaching through informed practice, learning through experience and reflection. I am currently learning how to integrate technology into my classroom. I am excited to be the student immersed in this new digital environment. Within this new learning environment the students and I learn alongside one another. I believe this makes learning more engaging and authentic for children when they have the opportunity to make meaningful connections with what they are learning about.

In future I hope to build highways with children so they can make connections with their learning community via digital learning journals and blogs.

    Kia ora Sarah and welcome to the Blended e-learning Literacy group.

    This is a group to support the e-Learning aspect of raising student achievement in literacy.

    Please do use the Group discussion navigation tab to join in and/or initiate discussion about the use of e-Learning to support literacy. Share your favourite tools or readings through the Group bookmarks or expand on this in the Group blog.

    Remember, the best way to learn something is to teach it, so be active in this space and contribute your ideas to enrich the practice of all.

    Looking forward to working with you online.
