Welcome to Switch On NZ
My name is Paula Jamieson and I consider myself to be an
Educational Technologist - a specialist in tools to enhance learning.
I am a New Zealand Registered Teacher, who works for and is based in Te Akau ki Papamoa School in the sunny Bay of Plenty. Currently I spend .5 of my time working with TAKP staff and students and have played a key role in implementing TAKP's 1:1 iPad initiative (the first one in NZ to be totally school funded). During the other .5 of my time I am able to offer affordable learning support and professional development in all things E-Learning related NZ wide. In 2015 I will be full time at TAKP and providing a limited amount of staff meetings. I will also be available for Teacher Only Days in school holidays.
I have previously been a classroom teacher then ICTPD Cluster Facilitator and E-Learning Advisor, who in 2013 became an independent advisor/consultant.
For me it's all about the conversation, the rapport, the relationship. I pride myself on being able to take you from where you are now.......to where you WANT to be!
I am currently working with more than 30 schools across the North Island, with a variety of tools, programmes and directions - Everything from Google Tools to Blogging to personalising apps into Te Reo Maori to designing iBooks and iTunes U courses.
Making connections both online and off is something I thrive on. I look forward to the possibility of working with you in the future!
In School Professional Development - Staff Meetings
I provide face to face, effective, affordable support with not just the tools (technology) but the pedagogy, teaching and learning. I tailor PD to your needs, whether that's a management meeting, a staff meeting or a team workshop.
In School Professional Development - Teacher Only Days
In 2015 I will be available for booking in school holidays to run management direction meetings, whole staff TOD's or a series of targeted (opt in?) workshops.
Professional development that builds confidence and is transferred and infused directly back into the classroom to truly impact on student engagement and achievement.
