Our New Class Blog

After spending the last three years in grade two, I have moved to grade four this year.

The first two weeks of the school year has already presented many new challenges and rewards.

I’m looking forward to extending my students further with technology this year. I am continuing to team teach with Kelly Jordan. This is a fabulous way to teach but is much more challenging logistically in two portables. See our new classrooms here.

Many readers of this blog may have followed http://2kmand2kj.global2.vic.edu.au during 2011.

We’re asking all 2KM and 2KJ followers to update their links to the 4KM and 4KJ blog.

    Have noticed a lot of blogs still have your 2KM&2KJ details! Great idea to have a post to get it sorted out.

    Your new blog is fab.

    And the change for me has been moving from specialist to the generalist classroom and upping my time fraction!

    Best of luck with 4KM and 4KJ.

      Feel free to spread the word if you come across any blogs with 2KM and 2KJ. It’s hard changing URLs every year. Maybe next year we can have 4KM and 4KJ stay the same. Who knows!

      You do have a big change this year. Somehow I think you’re going to love it!

    My change this year has been moving out of the classroom into a new role of ‘Digital Literacy’. It’s certainly different starting the year without a bunch of kids and setting up that learning environment and community with them. It’s all the more interesting being a new role, so it’s really creating the job as I go. Looking forward to getting into classrooms to work with lots of different kids and ages though! We have already kickstarted blogging with 20 grades this year (well up on 2 last year) – that has been a learning experience but it’s been fantastic to have so many staff willing to give it a go.

    Can’t wait to see what your 4’s get up to this year!

      Hi Dale,

      How great to work at a school where digital literacy is valued so much that it is a whole teacher role!

      At our school we no longer have an ICT specialist teacher so the onus is on teachers to use ICT in their classrooms. The kids don’t march off to the ICT lab once a week for their “ICT lesson”. In theory that sounds good – I’m a strong believer of integrating technology – hence the title of this blog! In reality I don’t think it’s going to happen without some kind of coach/facilitator/co-ordinator/pusher. We’ll see!

      I’m glad you’re getting more classes blogging and hopefully the staff will keep persisting with it. I look forward to hearing about what else you get up to this year!

      Kath
