Notes from Andy

Monday 17 March 2014

Good morning everyone

Keeping it brief today as have miscalculated the time difference and only have a few minutes to get this to you......

Big thank you for all the work that has gone into MYP moderation which is all due to Adrian this week. I trust the last few hours of that will go smoothly.


Please send all articles to Claudia this week who will input them in the google doc. I will check them from there.

Staff Workroom

In the absence of any established protocols and agreements around our use of the workroom, can I just ask everyone who uses it, to be mindful of others in there, and that it is a workspace.

ASCD Conference

Had the first day of the conference yesterday, which was excellent. Keynotes from Daniel Pink and Ken Robinson, workshops on IT tools and blended professional learning. It was a stimulating day and if you can imagine a keynote for 9000 people, it was a sight to behold.

The first school visits to two high tech high schools in San Diego was also an eye-opener to hear the impact on engagement of a project-based approach to learning. Their student ambassadors were compelling. Lots to share when I get back.

Have a great week.......
