New video delay app

Found a great new video delay app in the i tunes store

For the past few years I have used the 'bust a move' video delay app. This was extremely useful, however, it did have some drawbacks.

This new app has all the same features of the older BaM video delay app and more

This one allows the video to be downloaded. It allows the teacher or user to pause and draw and write over the static screen. It also allows delays of up to 10 minutes

This year I plan to use the delay app in every invasion sport lesson from year 9 through to year 12.

I am going to inquire into its use and coach the students on what they see using the GROWTH coaching model.

By pausing at certain points students can see defensive and offensive formations and view them from an angle that is not their own

Kootuitui Leaders day

Spent the day going through Wolf Fisher data for our school and also the cluster

Ideas I took.......

Its great to see Kootuitui primary school achieving above national averages in writing.

The acceleration in learning is evident in writing. This is also true for year 9 and 10 students at Papakura High. It appears digital pedagogy enhances this skill

Reading did not experience the same acceleration across the cluster. Maybe we need to consider multi model reading options for our students.

It was also evident that the kootuitui primary school students are achieving more than non kootuitui schools. Our school is benefiting from this. We have a cohort that has been conditioned in enquiry learning. Our job is to ensure that we enable this way of learning.

If we don't then we are doing the students a dis-service
