Want to spice up your teaching practice and hang out with awesome people? Come and get inspired at WellyED’s term four EduIgnite evening! It’s a high energy evening of 5 minute talks by people who have an idea – and the guts to get onstage and share it with their hometown crowd. Run by local volunteers, in this case Newlands Intermediate, it promises to be a fast-paced, fun, though-provoking, social evening.

Tuesday 3 November. 6pm for a 6.30 start. Newlands Intermediate, Shared Learning Area 1. Nibbles provided.

It costs nothing to attend – so why wouldn’t you. If it’s your first EduIgnite evening you can come along with no expectations. If it’s your second it’s your turn to step up – either bring a friend who’s never been before or present something you’ve been thinking about.

Register right here!

Come and play with us! Play Date #1: Gaming, Saturday 18th July, 2pm-4pm, In Good Company, 166A Cuba Street, Wellington

Do you want to play some digital online, offline games with other educators? Do you want to be in a conversation about learner-driven curriculum and pedagogy?

On this play date we are just trying stuff and we are extending the invitation to you. You will need:

  • Laptop/device

In 2014 Gamification was one of CORE Education’s 10 digital trends. Click here for information about Gamification. In 2015 Gamification is no longer placed as a trend, rather its place may be found  amongst Inclusive Design. Click here for information about Inclusive Design. This play date is a response to attending a CORE Education Breakfast: Games and the future of education by Rachel Bolstad & Dan Milward

“Students and teachers can work together to find the most effective ways to integrate digital technologies into learning environments: removing barriers to learning, providing increased choices matched to student needs and interests, and expanding collaboration opportunities.”
