Penguin Teachers’ Academy resources

So today’s the big day of the Penguin Teachers’ Academy that I’ve been blathering on about here for the last little while. It should be a great day of sharing and learning. To help continue that, the vast majority of the resources I’ll present can be found here:

Thanks to all of those people who have generously agreed to share their own work.

Penguin Teachers’ Academy

I was very excited and proud to be asked by the lovely Tye Cattanach to deliver the full day professional learning event for Penguin Teachers’ Academy on Friday 8 March in Melbourne.

I’ll be presenting on innovative reading and book promotion techniques using ICT and will focus on:

  • The Readers’ Cup – a free reading competition for Victorian schools
  • Book promotion and sharing students’ responses to text using ICT
  • eBooks. How we’re using eBooks at Kew High School
It is $120 for the full day, which is a bargain in my opinion. If you are interested, you can access more information and the booking form here. Also have a look at the day run by Corrie Barclay on ICT for Primary literacy at the same link.
