The Qatar Academy, Doha, Qatar – Day 4

| January 25, 2012 | 3 Comments 

Today’s timetable was gloriously packed: lessons with 60 Year 6 pupils and their teachers followed by another lesson with the rest of the Year 6 pupils, and their teachers. Next up was a session with the Year 4 and Year 5 teachers, swiftly followed by a lesson with the Year 1 pupils, exploring a beach with buckets of sand and bowls of water.

Lessons over, and all the primary school staff joined us in the afternoon for an iPad session where the teachers wandered through Epic Citadel, made a pot and spotted a pick-pocket. Overheard by one teacher, “we’re kinda just cruising around”. That’s what pick-pockets do isn’t it?

We ended the day working with a graduate class of senior and primary school teachers working towards their Certificate of Educational Technologies through the University of Buffalo, The State University of New York. Having seen a lot of the workshops already during the week the primary teachers dissappeared for a while to solve the problem of the pick-pockets baby using a range of Web2 tools while the senior school teachers got to see the ‘out of this world presentation’

And our next session was shopping, Doha style.

    I feel like I am constantly telling a story as I go in and out of these sessions. For a school who has a lot of things happening with Tech, these sessions with Tim have brought me back to language and creating a passion for stories.

    Thank you for your time at QA and all that you had to share with us. Your sessions I think bring us back to what technology is …….. A tool to promote learning in the classroom rather than technology being something we must teach children. Thanks
