We are Winners!

It was an AWESOME feeling when I got the email on Friday informing me of #NZreadaloud’s winning of the Interface ‘Teaching with ICT’ award.

I am very proud.

  My reason for entering #NZreadaloud into this category is that through the use of ICT we are CONNECTING learners and enabling them to share their understanding of a text.

THIS is where the future of literacy is for me.

I would like to thank ALL the teachers who involved their classes over the year. It is YOUR dedication and belief in the kaupapa which has made #NZreadaloud successful.

I would especially like to thank the leaders of the groups from #NZreadaloud3 – Megan Nelson-Latu, Mark Buckland, Belinda Whyte, Kaehlah Dawson, Stacey Carter, Jemma Thorogood, Karen Hinge, Rachel Moran, and Aimee Davis.

These teachers / friends really took on a big responsibility to ensure their team knew how things were organised.

They led by example.

They embraced the kaupapa of #NZreadaloud.

YOUR passion and commitment is why this has been a success.

Lastly…looking ahead to 2016

I would like to thank Kaehlah, Jemma, Stacey, and Karen who are ALL local teachers and who have put their hand up to LEAD a Year level. All except Karen and myself are doing this with year groups which they do not even teach in.

A HUGE thanks to you all for believing…

and giving up precious time to make the expansion happen!
