Secondary School

The Manaiakalani pedagogy ‘Learn, Create, Share’ puts our young people at the very centre of their learning. Consequently harnessing the affordances of digital technology, through Visible Learning and Teaching, for secondary schools requires a considered deployment of technology informed by learning focused actions.

This site brings together pedagogy, processes and procedures that we have identified best support the goals of Manaiakalani and contribute to enabling our schools to improve learning outcomes for our young people.

Secondary Class site basics

Matt Goodwin's example site (see right) has many of the basic elements to get started with a secondary school class site. Things you'll want to include are;

  • A welcoming home page, photo of you, contact info, maybe your timetable

  • Set up top level pages for your subjects and/or year level

  • Add a footer at the bottom of the site with links to other sites used i.e. Hapara, Kamar, NZQA, school website, ixl, ,
