Web2 favourites (not my favs) but useful link I think is "awesome"!!!Are you looking for positives to use in the class?How to appreciate the small things. Neil Pasricha started a blog and it is now a book. The webpage counts down from 1000, awesome things. Some may need vetting before reading to your class.

Neil wrote our email in his blog, our wiki had a spike of over 1000 visitors in one day! classes count down of Kids 100 awesome things.

Other Inspiration
Recently I had an email from Tony Ryan! I thought it was a joke at first too. But to my surprise it was actually was him. He tweeted about my classes thinking in their Kids 100 Awesome Things countdown. Here is a video of Tony from when I first was inspired by him at his Innovative teaching breakout, Ulearn09. I ditched one of the next breakouts I’d signed up for and went to his Thinkers Keys breakout too.


My class- Blog of the weekFeatured on Interface Magazine's website April 12 - 17 2011


My purpose initally in setting up this wiki was to have a place to store my ideas and favourite sites, for myself to use.
Now I also share with anyone who is interested, or needs something.
I am currently teaching an awesome class of year 2 students, at Waihi Beach School in New Zealand. I have been lead teacher at two schools and am always involved with ICT teams. This year I have the challenging job of looking after hardware.
I love living and working at the beach, it is a different way of life!
I have a Son who is 9.
He is lucky enough to go to Waihi Beach School.

My partner Jay McKechnie is a Science, Physics and Calc teacher at Waihi College (poor Zac had no chance 2 teachers as parents).
Jay is always giving me a hand when I have hairbrain ideas. Especially when it involves blowing stuff up!
