About me

I am passionate about teaching Science to all. I love learning and teaching my students. I am mad for books, games, DVDs, experiments, discovery and wonder. When I am not teaching or learning I sleep - not enough - but enough for me. I am blessed to be surrounded by strong colleagues, peers and mentors who assist, guide and strengthen me. I have two beautiful daughters, smart and feisty daughters who get their quiet strength from their mum and their mad irish fun from me. I want to learn everything about everything to be a better teacher, parent and partner. i am here because I hope you will help me to achieve this and maybe I can share what I learn with you. Contact me anytime 10am - 2am on tony.cairns.nz@gmail.com or text 0226534021

    Kia ora Tony and welcome to the Blended e-learning Literacy group.

    This is a group to support the e-Learning aspect of raising student achievement in literacy.

    Please do use the Group discussion navigation tab to join in and/or initiate discussion about the use of e-Learning to support literacy. Share your favourite tools or readings through the Group bookmarks or expand on this in the Group blog.

    Remember, the best way to learn something is to teach it, so be active in this space and contribute your ideas to enrich the practice of all.

    Looking forward to working with you online.

    Ngā mihi nui, nā Anne

    Tēnā koe Tony,

    Welcome to the iPad group on the VLN.

    There are lots of great resources to be found here particularly in the discussions and bookmarks.

    Please have a good look around and join in the discussions.

    Let us know if there is something you would like particular assistance with.

    I thought you had already joined the iPad Group.

    Are there two of you ;-)

    Cheers

    Allanah
