This term Ormiston proudly hosted the Using Technology Better conference. Educators from all over New Zealand gathered to learn how to best use technology with their students. Teams of educators, including Ormiston Learning Coaches, attended a variety of workshops ran by Google certified teachers Mike Reading from Australia and Alice Keeler from California. The workshops covered a range of topics including;
– Google Classroom A-Z
– Getting going with coding
– The fundamentals of a great BYOD plan
– Tech tools that give you real data on student progress
The conference delegates were taken on a tour of Ormiston to see just how successfully technology can be used in a range of Learning Habitats and our Learning Coaches were inspired to get even more tech-savvy with our Ormiston learners.
