Welcome to the TimNet ICT Cluster Wiki

We are a group of three Timaru Schools which form the TimNet ICT Cluster. The aim of the cluster is to improve the use of ICT in our teaching and learning during 2009, 2010 and 2011. The aim of this wiki is to provide an online space to showcase our achievements and share our experiences. A must see for everyone in education.....

This excellent website engages students through allowing them to use an e Portfolio to present work and carry through with them on their learning journey. These have been used at TGHS this year with great success and lots of schools seem to be piloting them this year.

It's a great resource to provide some of you course materials on line and also build some tutorials that students can access anyhwere, anytime!

21 Things came about due to a need to find a creative way to educate teachers on the core technology skills they needed. The ne6919904.jpged also included a desire to find a way to deliver professional development just-in-time and at anytime teachers needed it. Along with that there was a need to have everything aligned to the National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers.

This site is called Cool Web 2.0 Tools for Schools. This should be your first point of call when you are looking for any web based applications. This is one of the best collections I've seen!!!!!
