The power of #NZreadaloud1

We are into the final week of our New Zealand Read Aloud. This was an initiative I started after being inspired last year by the Global Read Aloud. A project where classes connect with each other and share and discuss their thoughts and ideas about a story, its characters, the setting, and the plot.

It has been an amazing project to have our students involved in as not only are they connecting with other learners but it has given them an opportunity to learn about some online tools such as Popplet and Padlet and how these can be used for collaboration and presentation of ideas.

Here is an example of a task which was posted by Mr Shaw in Christchurch:

Here is an example of some of the discussion which took place...
