The remainder of 2014 will allow us to come together as a staff to re visit what we value and believe are key ingredients in a 21st century environment.
A modern learning environment essentially means an environment that is current and also reflective of the needs of our students and whanau.
The entire Gilberthorpe community will be involved in this process.
It is vital that we have the opportunity to discuss effective teaching practice, and effective teaching environments in order to gain a shared understanding before moving forward and thinking about what our physical classes may look like.
We have begun work with Core education and the Ministry to help educate us through seminars, readings and visits in order to create our own vision for us @ Gilberthorpe.
Watch this space as I update our progress and provide links to various fantastic websites containing research and living and breathing examples.
