Having Fun Collecting Data

W.A.L.T. collect data and create graphs from the data.
The Hub split into their Ako Whanau Groups and rotated through stations and collected data.  They were able to rotate jobs in their groups in order for them to try out new roles.  They timed each other, dribbled basketballs, shot hoops, researched weather temperatures, recorded their pulse before and after exercise.  There was lots of collaboration and active learning going on, not to mention the abundance of smiles.

The class learned about the different techniques used by advertisers and then used them to persuade their audience to attend the show. They both used the Bandwagon technique. I'm sure we will have a wonderful turnout next week!!!

New Hub!!!

The Kauri team is now officially in the new Hub space.  There is plenty of emotions from students and teachers alike.  We are excited about the new experience, but a bit nervous as well.  So far we have been in the hub for a little over a week.  We're still in the trial and error stage but I am sure we will have it down in no time!!!
