Murrays Bay Intermediate School Visit

On Thursday we visited Murrays Bay Intermediate School and Sunnybrae Normal School to find out how they are integrating ICT into the curriculum. We had a very comprehensive visit to Murrays Bay Intermediate and saw into the classrooms where we observed students in the language classes using Voice Thread for language learning. We also saw students using the SmartBoards (one in every room) for group based learning activities. Colin Dale, the Principal and Shannon,the AP were really helpful in explaining the invitational learning philosophy and inquiry based learning model used in the school.
At Sunnybrae Jenny, the Principal and Steven the DP spent time showing us their school intranet and explained how the school has integrated Web2 tools into classroom learning.
The following slideshow shows photos of learning experiences at Murrays Bay Intermediate (including the visit from the drama group at
Rangitoto College to promote their Shakespeare Day!) video
