Wow thanks uLearn!
This has been a beautiful adventure that I hope will never end.
On completion of my presentation I did not feel a feeling of relief or that it was 'over'. It's only just begun.
Sharing the ideas with the eFellows, I have discovered that although our research may appear to be vastly diverse we are all on the same path.
My kids could be the luckiest kids in the country (we all say that though don't we).
But they are about to embark on a journey where their horizons will be expanded via skype (Thank you Florence), they will see new class news shows where Te Reo is sustained (Thank you Puti). They will be aware that 4 year olds have the patience and discipline to do animation (Thank you Margaret). Their maths programme will be more meaningful and less wordy while at the same time communicating with them through social networking out side of 'learning hours' (Thank you Joel). And they will have a raised sense of social responsibility and awareness and will start to have conversations in relation to their purchasing choices(Thank you Nathan).
They will also continue to reflect on their presentation and group behaviour skills as well as collaborating with a bunch of other kids from all over the world.
So I am a buzzing mess but at the same time at ease. I have achieved a true love for my work.
Thank you Michael, Thank you Vince, Thank you Naketa, Thank you CORE
