#Positive Posting!! Building learner voice through Social Media. How can you create our tweets? #SFSLearnervoice #SFSParentvoice #SFSTeachervoice
I have been thinking of ways to build whānau engagement as well as learner voice. As part of the DFI course I have been thinking about ways I can create a purposeful audience for my learners where they can create to share as well as create to learn. It has been so great to see our learners creating their own reflections of how they are using our Stonefield's values and agency capabilities to create their own tweets!!
As part of the MIT and CoL process I have been thinking about how I can gift vocabulary so I created prompts for them to build language around our values, agency capabilities and tweeting to begin with and this has been really helpful for their motivations to writing as well as reading.
Although we do not know what the future holds I feel we have to attempt to understand what qualities and skills will be needed/desired to be successful adults: creative, risk takers who can self regulate and adapt to a changing environment (with confidence or resilience?). - That's my thoughts anyways. Helping children to accept and understand what ‘comfortable with being uncomfortable so you are prepared for anything’ means.
