Welcome to my blog! I'm Karen Belt, a teacher and leader of digital learning, working at Lynmore Primary School in Rotorua, New Zealand. I'm teaching in a Year 2 class using iPads to engage and motivate learners and improve student achievement. This blog documents my teaching journey and my learning processes with iPads in the classroom. I've proud of having been a member of the inaugural Manaiakalani Digital Teaching Academy(MDTA) program and last year a Spark Manaiakalani Innovative Teacher (MIT) and Manaiakalani Google Class OnAir teacher.

Sharing the successes ...

One of the great things about being a part of the MDTA program is the opportunity to use this time to create - a few weeks ago as a team,  the 10 beginning teachers created a Romeo & Juliet site for the English Department at Tamaki College  -  a true example of many hands making light work!

Now we have the opportunity to create a site to help our learners in Term 2!  As our five year olds are not yet able to read information on the site, after discussing ideas with Michelle, I will be working on a resource site for teachers to use in the future as they move to using 1:1 devices.

This also gives Michelle and I an opportunity to reflect on the learning we've done this term and the resources that we have so far created.  I would hope that the site would be a continually evolving rich resource base for years to come.

As I begin story boarding for the site and start the creation, I look forward to revisiting the learning and experiences I've had this term and hope that through sharing these, other teachers are able to transition to this exciting digital environment!  Watch this space!
