About Me
This is my 8th year teaching at Yew Chung International School of Beijing. The first five years I taught Year 5/Grade 4 and then moved to Year 4/Grade 3 using the National Curriculum of Great Britain.

After being introduced to the world of Web 2.0 five years ago I decided to pursue my Masters in Integrated Technology graduating from Walden University in December 2010. I want to use all of my knowledge to encourage students and teachers to become travellers in this amazing world.

I am passionate about Global Collaboration and bringing iPads into the classroom for authentic learning.

I need more than my Integrated Tech K-12 Masters to feel I am growing in the classroom

Hi all,

I was introduced to Web 2.0 almost 2 years ago during a presentation of some of our teachers who had attended the first Web 2.0 conference in Shanghai. From there I learned about K-12 Onine Conference and I was off and running in many different directions with not great focus. I have often described my learning online as have Internet ADD. use… Continue

Podcasting for Beginners

Posted on May 7, 2009 at 11:22pm 2 Comments

Hi all,

I know that so many of you podcast and so I am going to the experts. I need a few resources that will help me learn how to podcast with my Grade 4 students. It was one of the goals I set for myself this year and it is the only one that I have not done. I honestly don't know where to start and I know there are great resources out there. I guess what I need is a sort of "Podcasting for Dummies". I have learned much over the years from the "..for Dummies" books.

I… Continue

Good morning from Beijing.

We are 10 days into the Chinese New Celebration with only 5 days to go. Why do I mention that? Because it has been relatively quiet at nights except for the 5th and the 10th nights when fireworks again burst on the scene. Now we just have to wait for the 15th day (night) for the Lantern Festival which marks the official end of the celebration with another round of hours of fireworks until around midnight. Then there will be blessed peace again.… Continue

Grade 4 Children are Fantastic

Posted on September 3, 2008 at 8:25am 0 Comments

Today I decided to ask my Grade 4 students what they wanted to learn about in IT and about computers. I thought I would start small in an area I am working on myself and see what they wanted rather than doing what I think they want or should know.

I got the idea from a small homework assignment I gave them this week about our class website. Bookmarking was something I asked them to do with our site and most of them indicated they didn't know how to do that but wanted to learn to do… Continue

Hi Heather,
Welcome to the PBL~Better with Practice group. This is a great place to dig into questions you may have about project-based learning. Please feel free to start a new discussion question if there's something specific you'd like to know more about. I'm interested in how PBL "looks" in China, where you're teaching. Glad to see you here!

Hi Heather.
Of course I remember you from Qatar.
The conference was a fantastic event!
We had around 500+ there and the keynotes and workshops were all first class!
See http://21clearninghk.ning.com/ and http://hkworkshop09.flatclassroomproject.org/

See you in Shanghai next month (I am there with Mathletics in October)

Hi Heather,

With your srong interest in Web 2.0 Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording conducted by Nellie Deutsch on Technology Integration.

Hi Heather -- I'd like to invite you to join a Classroom 2.0 group called Canadians Mashup. I'm trying to build a network of Canadian educators and bloggers. No discussions yet. I'm just starting out by trying to find where everyone lives and what they teach. If you're interested, please add me as a colleague as well.

If you add yourself to the map, please include a name or a photo of some sort. There seem to be a lot of unidentified people from unidentified places and the map is getting stuck on for some reason. The problem is that I can't tell from the members’ list which anonymous hits are real people and which were just false starts. The company does not differentiate members unless there is a picture or a name. Location only is not enough to help me know which entries are not real ones. THANKS!!!!

It sounds like we have a lot in common -- I'm starting my Masters in Instructional Media in the new year and have been 'doing technology' for about 16 months.

Hello Heather, yes I am getting excited about the conference. First I go to Nanjing no 1 school to help there for a few days as we have a group of students from our state staying there for 6 weeks. I havent done second life before, but I know I should get involved. Always fearful that I will get lost!! When do we enrol for sessions? Do you know? Or do we all just attend the same sessions?

Hope to see you soon!
