Welcome

Diocesan School for Girls challenges young women and inspires them to maximise their individual potential in a Christian community through high quality learning, a wide range of opportunities and continuous innovation. The goals of the NZOER, those of fostering reusable, portable content created across the nation fit well with the promise that ICT has long offered education and we are pleased to play our part in this project.

Featured project

Stonefields overview.jpg

The Stonefields Project was a project that looked at the building of a new state primary school in the Auckland suburb of Mt Wellington. The new school, scheduled to open in 2011, is part of a wider community development involving the building of an entire new "suburb" in what remains of an old quarry site. (More to come)

-- Over the coming weeks we hope to have an exemplar of how we might begin with the OER work here at Dio. We trialed a Year 9 program over several months this year that drew content from several different curriculum areas and tried to deliver a learning opportunity to our students that was totally underpinned by the use of a range of ICT applications, but in a context which was both real and community based. Students seemed to enjoy the project. We hope to document the project showcasing not just the successful outcomes, but also the journey for both staff and students ... and the ICT involved.

Parent portal is open to parents, but they use the username of the student and have their own password (so in Kamar there are 3 passwords for each student) because the student has access to things...

Re: Churchie School Research - the value of device interface to promote higher order thinking
Interesting. With touchscreen devices becoming more prevalent, are there any chances of including ChromeOS and IOS devices with stylus types of pens?
