Day 92 April 1st 2016

On my birthday I was lucky enough to be asked to present a workshop in the beautiful Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi in Whakatane. Whilst there Nigel and I also went to visit Te Kura Whare which is an ‘off the grid’sustainable building. It is eco-friendly and has a stunning design which is open, light and warm at the same time.

Incidentally,  it was also checkpoint 5 of the Oxfam 100km trailwalk so I was back there the following evening for quite different reasons.

Two photos then… One of each of these beautiful and inspiring buildings.

Te Kura Whare



Teacher of Languages first and foremost but passionate about learning and teaching. I have been learning how to blend technology into my teaching for the last twenty years and worked for seven years supporting colleagues to build their skills and confidence using digital technologies as part of their teaching and learning. In 2014 I was honoured to be awarded an eFellowship from Core Education which was a challenging and fun year. I am now a Connected Learning Advisor with Core Education. In that role I support school leaders in their planning and implementation of technology. I love being in the outdoors and spend as much of my time as I can in the bush, by the ocean and on mountains.
