Thank you so much, Dorothy, for raising awareness about our Summer Learning Journey programme. We are having a wonderful time blogging with students from across the Manaiakalani cluster of schools. As a team, we have been very impressed with the quality of the blog posts and with the degree of student engagement, both with us as researchers/teachers/commenters and with each other as students. They are doing so well!!

The Summer Learning Journey programme will continue until Friday 27 January and we will be online each day reading and commenting on student posts. Please feel free to join us!

Warm regards,
Rachel, Dan, and Mark (the Summer Learning Journey blogging team)

Blogging can occur any time, any where and can be a wonderful opportunity for students to share their personal ideas/experiences as well as evidence of their learning both at school and at home. This summer we are excited to offer Year 9 students at Tamaki College the opportunity to join a summer blogging programme. It is called a Summer Learning Journey. Students are able to learn about the customs and cultures of people living in 10 countries around the world. As they learn, they are asked to create digital learning objects that they share on their blogs. We, a team of educators and researchers at the Woolf Fisher Research Centre, will read the blogs and provide individualised feedback to all participants.

Research suggests that students who engage in blogging over summer are able to maintain crucial literacy skills over the break. For more information on the programme, please don't hesitate to contact me (Rachel) any time! I'd love to chat about the programme and the huge benefits to be realised by making student's learning visible on their blogs. My email address is rachel.williamson@auckland.ac.nz. Cheers :)

This game looks amazing! I would love to post a link for it on the Summer Learning Journey website (https://sites.google.com/site/summerlearningjourney/welcome). It is a holiday blogging programme site that has been created for Manaiakalani cluster schools. It is being trialed in the original Manaiakalani school cluster at the moment. May I have permission to add a link to this game on the programme site? Cheers, Rachel
After some student input and checking this morning, CyberSmart: The Game is up and running via the Ako Hiko PLD site or the link below. It can be accessed via the CyberSmart menu. Feedback and corrections are always appreciated...
