    Bravissimo! Great work Allanah, and thanks for giving us a snapshot into your classroom. I love the whole Discovery Time thing you do with the kids, and the way you run the homework schedule. The kids are really lucky to have you as a teacher!

    Thanks again for having a default setting of sharing!

    Inwatching this video I have learned alot about how creativity and technology can make learning not only fun for students in a small town in New Zealand but also helps the students think out side the box. They have a day out of the week called Discovery Time where the kids can learn any thing from photography to how to draw something on a computer. The teacher was able to share and get students together from other schools to do projects..I was really impressed.

    I like what chris said about the whole discovery thing…..His reaction to the the video was how I felt. The speaker was defiintely into letting the students learn from each other via the standard book method
