As part of our work at the Asia Education Foundation we engage educators and PLCs in a range of topical Twitter Chats. You can find information about AEF Twitter chats here…Continue

I have just completed my outsourced video co-creation with Bonnie.
The topic is Wearable Technology: impact on society and global community. I used PowToons to organise my information and to sequence ideas. This is the first time I have used Powtoons and I found the timing of headings and images quite challenging. I also wanted to learn how to do an interactive YouTube so I have added more depth to my presentation by linking to relevant videos. Bonnie provided an outsourced YouTube…Continue

As I fumble my way through the digital landscape of this FCGE course, I realize I am in fact in the process of acquiring another language. I am experiencing all the curiosity, frustration, overwhelm and humility that are involved in acquiring any new language. As a teacher of English as a Second Language, I am reminded of a tool I've used numerous times to best tailor my instruction to students at different…Continue

I will be teaching Scratch next week so I'm thinking of doing a task where students can…Continue

This week we started term 4 and my class of international students are meeting their team mates in the US. I've just been reading their messages and they are so interested in each other.
In 3 short lessons I have seen how 'learning by doing' is a way to open up valuable teachable moments on how to behave online and how important it is to develop the habits of mind such as persistence, independent learning and how to set up collaborative relationships. These discussions will develop…Continue

A 21st Century Skill we hear so much about is collaboration. We are encouraged to create learning experiences that require our students to work productively in groups, to use communication and conflict resolution skills, to ask for help when needed, and to put their learning out there for the world to see.
