Knowing my learning style - I am definitely a doer when it comes to learning new skills. Fortunately the rewindable learning of slide decks and how to videos mean that you don't need to remember everything, as is with the technology era that we live in. You just need to remember how to find the content or information that you need. Being digitally literate is so important. Gone are the days when you needed to be able to recite the textbook, these days you need to be able to ctrl F to find the info you want fast. It's about knowing how, rather than the what.

Because we following the Manaiakalani pedagogy of Learn Create Share we all had time this afternoon to create something in slides and draw to cement our new learning from this morning, and then share these creations on our blogs. In doing so we're able to cement and put into practice our learning from the day. It's this kaupapa that we want to see for our tamariki too, allowing them opportunities to authentically create to demonstrate their learning of a new skill or topic. And what is the point of creating something without an authentic audience to share it with? Anyway - I don't want to preach to the converted.
Have a look at our digital creations and reflections from today
