Correspondence Unit - Great Barrier Island

Mulberry Grove School hosts a Correspondence Unit for secondary school students to attend a supervised unit for study. This important unit is a place where the students who spend a lot of their time studying at home, can work together a few times a week with other secondary school students.

Sue West has been working on Great Barrier Island with the Correspondence School students and teachers.



Student Bloggers & Interface Article

At St James Catholic School (PN), Year 4 and 5 students have individual blogs. They are building a true home/school partnership by training the parents/whanau to comment on next learning steps for their children directly onto their blogs. The classes have a CreateIt wiki that is the portal into their online learning.

Examples of student blogs from St James Catholic School (PN) -


Great Barrier Island ICT Cluster

Students on Great Barrier Island from Mulberry Grove, Kaitoke and Okiwi Schools, used Tony Ryan's Thinkers Keys to create animations. The students used Audacity and Sound Recorder to create audio tracks for their animations.


Creating Ringtones

At Mangere Central School, students used a combination of the desktop microphones, interactive whiteboards, Audactiy and Hammerhead Rhythm Station software to make ringtones for their mobile phones.


Web 2.0 @ Three Kings School

Students at Three Kings School are making the most of Web 2.0 tools for learning.

Students have blogs and use a variety of presentations tools such as, PictureTrail (, Bubbleshare (, and much more. They use collaborative brainstorming tools like My Webspiration ( and use VoiceThread ( for peer assessment.

Access to the New Zealand Curriculum is enabled at Three Kings Schools through the use of eLearning.


Digital Cameras in the Hands of Students

The cameras were first trialed at Dominion Road School. Students were asked to read to the cameras and playback their video on a standard TV. The students could then self-evaluate their reading. The beauty of the cameras is that the contents can be deleted so the students can have another go, striving to improve. The students also used them for gathering patterns around the school. The photo of the kiwi on the globoresource page was taken by a student at Dominion Road School.


Claymation 4 Students

At St Therese School (Mt Roskill), students created figures using plasticince and cardboard. They used digital video cameras, tripods, Microsoft MovieMaker and Desktop Microphones to animate Maori legends.


St Mary's College, Auckland Girls' Grammar & Ponsonby Intermediate Schools

St Mary's College (Ponsonby), Auckland Girls' Grammar School and Ponsonby Intermediate School have used Ministry of Education EHSAS funding wisely. The schools have been working with Sue West of Globo Ltd. and Researcher Liz Probert of the Faculty of Education, The University of Auckland to develop an Information Literacy model to coincide with the implementation of the new, New Zealand Curriculum.

The Lead Team for this project comprises teacher representatives from each of the 3 schools. They have been working together to develop print materials and a pbwiki ( for teachers, students and parents.


Wikis for Secondary School Science

At Otahuhu College, Globo staff assisted the HOD Science to create the Active Science wiki for students to work independently on Science tasks.


Digital Cameras with ECE

The team at Globo were asked to present the 5-Pack to the parents/caregivers, staff and students of Robertson Road Community ECE Centre. Students were given the opportunity to take pictures using the cameras without any instructions or guidance. The first thing that the students did, was to take pictures of each taking pictures. This picture shows one of the students who was taking pictures of his friends who also had cameras.
