Academic Matters: Term 3 Week 5

Academic Matters: Term 3 Week 5

This week I had the opportunity to see drones in action in a Year 9 Mathematics class. The students were using Pythagoras’ and trigonometry to find out how high the drone was flying. The students thought the lesson was fun and they were engaged in the process, well done to Amy Kemp for making this happen.

On Monday night, our staff watched the film ‘Most Likely to Succeed’ which was featured at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015.It was based on what’s happening at a school in the US called High Tech High where students are exposed to project based learning. There were quite a few takeaways that we as a staff can take on board in our classes, and many staff have been talking how they can use what was presented in their classes.

The staff professional learning on Monday September 4 will be an interactive day of learning, where staff will be challenged think strategically about their school learning community by identifying, innovating and designing positive change using their deep contextual knowledge and our award-winning process, the Changemaker Journey. The group that are facilitating us on the day are called Education Changemakers http://educationchangemakers.com/ . They will facilitate the conversation around innovation and change, especially around technologies, disruption and how we are educating students for the future.

Deciding on subjects for 2018 has been a challenging process for some, so I wanted to say thank you for working with us in getting selections in. The next stage of the process is for us to look at all the subject choices that students have indicated they would like to study and then to make it all fit into our structures. There may be some calls that I will need to make as I cannot guarantee that everyone will get their selections for 2018.
