As many teachers know the beginning of a new year always brings rejuvenated hopes and aspirations of achieving something great. Mark Oliphant College (MOC) will open its new doors in April in a purpose built Birth to Year 12 setup. I form part of the team teaching LEGO Robotics and Multimedia. MOC has some large challenges ahead of it and this blog will serve not only as journal but as a lens to educators around the world interested in the development of a curriculum and school which teaches for the individual and acknowledges the world young people live in now.
I've started up a Vimeo Channel which will showcase some of the work at the school: http://vimeo.com/channels/markoliphantcollege. The video is Part 1 is a series of videos taken in December 2010 as the school comes together.
