Today I was the guest speaker on a Manaiakalani Google Hangout.
I was suprised how easy and effective Hangouts were with one person as the MC making sure people's microphones were all off when they weren't speaking, giving time for asking questions, and keeping the discussion moving.
I spoke about how my sites and visible planning have evolved over the last 3 years.
I also mentioned Google Class OnAir, and the Spark MIT inquiry I've been doing this year, and where to find my resources, lesson plans and sites.
This video was also on the page I presented, but I left it for anyone to watch it in their own time. Secretly I am quite proud of it! It's a summary of my year of inquiry with Year 13 Biology, focussing on improving University Entrance.
It's 7 minutes 33 but I promise it moves along at a cracking pace :)
We finished the Google Hangout with a collaborative Padlet, asking for tangible suggestions on how collaborative teaching and learning communities could be build up among secondary schools.
