Kidsedchatnz is here!

Kidsedhchatnz is a fantastic learning and teaching chat which happens on Twitter each week on a Wednesday at 2.00pm.  Unfortunately we will miss it this week due to swimming sports but we will be joining in from Week 5.  It's an NZ chat run by NZ teachers and students which is very exciting!

There is often a video to watch and then some questions for you to think about.  This works in with our Prep for Learning and will push you to think more deeply about current events, etc.

We now have a class Twitter account which I will share with you later in the week.  This is becoming a powerful tool for connecting learners and teachers and sharing learning across a wide audience.  All discussion is closely monitored and it's a great opportunity to see what other people your age think about different questions and issues.

This is the video for this week.  It's presented by an inspirational young man who goes by the name of Kid President.  He will challenge your thinking.  Click on the Kidsedchatnz link so you can get an idea of what the questions are like each week.  (It will take you to their blog).
