Tawa College Cluster Mid-Year Reflections

In 2012 we have developed three key foci: Strategic, Implementation and Documentation 

Strategic:

This built on from the BOT Community Consultation from mid-2011, culminating in the development of an ICT overview that will encompass the school life span of the 2012 Year 9 cohort – ie 2012 – 2016. This has been adopted by the BOT and will underpin further developments

Implementation:

This provided training for staff in the use of our Moodle site – E2Learn.  http://e2learn.school.nz/

The site was upgraded to 2.1, so further training was needed. Survey Monkey data from February enabled us to fine tune staff PL: through skill-based sessions in Term 1, with a more specific  department /curriculum focus in Term 2 A further (paper-based) survey has just been completed, to establish future needs and the extent to which progress has been made. 

Documentation. This year the aim was to provide video evidence in the form of clips of student voice. As this combined student organisation, film and ICT it took longer to establish than we anticipated, with fewer clips than we would like. Here we have three.
