Class Facebook Groups: Please note that these groups are set up by teachers for their own communication with the parents / carers of students in their class only. You will need to be accepted as a member by the class teacher before you can see content in these groups.
All teachers are expected to be communicating with parents and caregivers on a regular basis. This has most often been via diary notes, communication books, class newsletters or face to face. Increasingly we have become more able to also communicate via digital media.
Please be aware that our teachers will be striving more often to flavour their communications with the learning intentions underpinning learning activities. There will also be a significant increase this year in our students publishing, sharing and improving their work in digital spaces.
We are mindful of the limitations our teachers are working under as we develop and improve our network infrastructure; our technical support systems; our training and development. We are also mindful of the need to go into changes at a pace that allows our teachers to process things well, so that they can actually build on their good practice. Ultimately anything we do must create better learning opportunities for students. You will see that there is a strong focus on this with all our teachers.
We have made rapid progress towards more effectively using digital technologies for powerful learning. This is great sign of the collaborative efforts and new learning from our teachers, students and also from our parents.
The lists below are a work in progress. More groups will be added soon. We are on a path that will only get bigger and more powerful…
