ABOUT LINDA

Apple Ed

My website reflects the teaching journey I have been on since 2012, which is when I was first introduced to blogging . I have been teaching since 1990, and teaching in New Zealand since 2008. In 2012 our school introduced technology into the classroom and this new journey began. Along the way I have discovered a number of passions. One is for blogging. I feel that it is a vital tool for reflection, convenient to showcase evidence of great work, and invaluable for developing your Teaching as Inquiry model. In addition I became curious about flipped lessons and the effectiveness of video creation as a teaching and learning method. Since attending Mindlab, I have discovered the variety of ways of flipping. Blended learning is also a focus in my class. But that has become the norm, so perhaps it’s just learning.

In 2015 I felt very fortunate to be included in the Apple Distinguished Educators programme. This forces me to constantly re-evaluate how I approach teaching and learning. I have attended institutes in Singapore, Berlin, Melbourne, Texas and the Gold Coast where I was one of the Spotlight Presenters:

  1. Hi Linda, I wanted to let you know that I have visited your page a few times now, to go over your notes that you so graciously shared with me. I am always reminded of something more we can do to help our students. Thanks again for allowing me the chance to reflect. I really appreciate it. Alastair Schaw.

    1. Hi Alastair
      Thanks for letting me know. This has been such a learning period for everyone hasn’t it? The more we share, the more we are able to reflect, refine and implement.
      Linda
