  • Smile We are growing! 2012 begins with 17 schools sending in enrolments. We're meeting new eTutors (supervisors in schools), working with school IT Coordinators where possible and getting everything set up to begin teaching on March 5th.

    Cool Breda and Suzie score more workmates this year! Joining us from Paeroa is Cathy O'Connell, while Annette Tate joins us from Dunedin and Justine Mouat joins in from Christchurch.

    Wink Behind the scenes, we've got Rayleen Faraimo, our new eAdministrator, seriously concentrating with incredible precision on enrolments, logging everyone into our Moodle space, this site, VoiceThread and Google Apps. She's even tuned into building resources for the ELLINZ online self-directed Vocabulary work and more recently, the Foundation Module.

    Laughing  Coming up, we've got workshop days for eTutors, eCoordinators and eTeachers:

    • Feb 13th: Orientation day for our new eTeachers
    • Feb 14th: Programme and Assessment Orientation Tour for eCoordinators
    • Feb 22nd: at Nelson Intermediate for South Island and Wellington based eTutors
    • Feb 27th: at Orewa College for North Island based eTutors
    • March 5th: classes begin between schools and their eTeachers
