So it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I haven’t been MIA… I’ve been happily working on the GAFE In Action event which consumed by every minute. And can I say, it was completely and totally worth it! Friday’s event was so successful. I am so overwhelmed by the positive feedback and support I have received. It’s really made me realise just how powerful and important it is to involve students in Professional Development Days. School is a place for kids. They need to be involved more. I have never seen my students so excited to teach. We provide lots of opportunities for them to teach on another in the classroom, but they have never been given such a ‘real’ experience. Providing them with the opportinuty to teach teachers and students from other schools really showed them how much they knew about GAFE. They were proud of themselves and were able to realise just how much they knew. They really were the experts. It was also rewarding to invite other schools to St Thomas More to see how we use GAFE across the school. Teachers need to work together inside and outisde their own schools. GAFE In Action really confirmed this for me. Thank you again to everyone who attended, supported me and ran workshops on the day. It wouldn’t have been possible without you. I have shared presentations of workshops I presented on Friday with you. A big thank you to Eleni Kyritsis who also inspired me with her passion towards Genius Hour. Another big thank you to Chris Harte and Brett Moller who were Keynote Presenters. You kick-started the day perfectly!
