#KIDspeakNZ - what are you an expert at?

Here is a separate STORIFY which specifically shows the tweets which answer QUESTION 3 - take a look at ALL THE COOL STUFF YOU GUYS ARE EXPERTS AT! I would LOVE to be in on these lessons! 

Which one would YOU like to sit in on?


Wednesday morning saw many of 'one6ers' participate in the second #KIDspeakNZ twitter chat. 

It was probably the fastest chat we had been involved in and definitely one of the BEST.

I moderated this chat alongside American teacher Marianne Malmstrom also known as @knowclue on twitter. Marianne is over in New Zealand for a conference and was keen to gather some student voice about how NZ schools are keeping up with the technology kids are using outside of school.

There were about 14 classes involved who tweeted close to 900 tweets during the 45 minutes.

These were the questions the kids responded to:

  1. What technology do you use outside of school to play, learn & connect with friends?
  2. Are schools keeping up with the way you use technology outside of school?
  3. Everyone is an expert at something. If you were to create a tutorial on ANYTHING in the world, what would it be?
  4. ‘No Future Left Behind’ was created 4 an international ‘Flat Classroom’ project. Do these kids speak 4U?
  5. Q4b  (if yes) No Future Left Behind was created 6 years ago. Are we there yet?
  6. If you could change one thing about the way you learn in school, what would it be?
  7. What is one thing you would like teachers to know about the way YOU like to learn things?

Here is the STORIFY of the chat for you to have a read of!
