Let your Teachers See Inside Your Students' Online World with these Self Paced Modules from acma Cybersmart

Schools are always looking for engaging, self paced tutorials that their teachers can sit down and interact with in Professional Learning situations/meetings. Well, here is a wonderful set of online 'cybersafety' modules (called Connect.ed and produced by acma in Australia) that will allow your teachers to work their way through and learn what today's students are doing online and what their online world looks/feels like to them.
In completing the highly engaging and informative modules, your teachers will learn lots about the online world of their students (with one module activity actually sitting the teacher in front of a student's PC screen and waiting for Instant messages to come through from their 'so called friends').
I could write all day about these wonderful modules, but it is best that you have a look at them yourself. I'm sure you will then let your teachers explore them in your next 'cybersafety' PL session at your school.

The other great part of this website is that there are many resources to help you establish, review and analyse your school's cybersafety/esmart curriculum, systems and structures.  Once into the site (see below for details on how to do this), you will see the link for 'cyberstarted').

The weblink to get to all this is at: . The teachers just need to sign up before they can enter the online space and must sign up with a or email address. The sign up link can be also found at .

Wonderful Mathematics Games for all Areas of Mathematics

Playing interactive games with your students are a great formative assessment tool (and a great way to build rapport, understand students' thinking and see which areas your students need to improve upon). Games can be played at the start, middle or end of a unit.  It is always best to have a list of interactive games websites for each unit that your students can play to test their knowledge in the unit.
One of my most popular postings on this blog is the 'frog race' game. Have a look at it here: (sorry if the link didn't work on a previous posting, I will fix that post up now).

Whilst hunting around for this link, I found this great site that contains many Mathematical games for all different Mathematics topics that your students can play on their devices or that you can play as a whole class on the IWB.  It is at: I recommend it for your Mathematics lessons.
