Finally! Finally you can see and feel the difference. We are moving into the next phase of classroom teaching – the multimodal, connected classroom. We have teachers connected on Twitter, Facebook and other online sites. Teachers can develop their PLN across their own country and the world and are starting to do that with their conferences and classrooms. Teachers are developing expertise in different technology areas whether it be apps, online sites like Google Education, Apple Education, Microsoft Education or mastering software and content delivery in a way which now shows confidence and expertise. We have our professional organisations interacting with us online and emails which are far more content rich and dynamic so that we are all starting to work together as a profession which is better enabling our classrooms , our skills and our content. The more we connect and share , the more we’ll determine good processes and ideas for education. It’s not even halfway through our school year in Australia. We are doing well!! Technology is organising content in a way which reaches out to more students and we are learning that .We are also sharing it as a profession and it shows. We’ve discovered the pitfalls and the work arounds and so we are able to move forward again. We are meeting our national performance standards really well.
