    What benefits are you getting out of being apart of DT online communities? What would you say to someone to encourage them to participate in DT online communities? In your post please tell us:

    1. Who you are
    2. What you teach
    3. What online communities you are apart of
    4. What you gain from engaging in these communities

    Thanks for sharing @Hamish.Johnston it's good to know communities have value - especially when we're all in this learning together. smiley If you have any top tips for beginners or cool ideas from your experiences to share, that would be fantastic too.

              Talofa koutou... My name is Sina Lologa.  I am a classroom teacher at Sir Edmund Hillary Collegiate, Otara, Middle School!  I teach Yr 7 students.  I guess I am on any online community that I have clicked on at the end of each Pikau.  I actually didn't realise that clicking on the community discussions at the end of each Pikau was part of the learning tasks as I just thought I had finished the Pikau.  It was only when our school had a open discussion on how we were going on our Pikau that I realised I needed to participate in order for my Community wheel to show some form of progress.  Yet all the tasks given to try out.. I had religiously tried them out on my class and talked about it with my peers and students but I had not taken that next step.  Once I got the idea of how to participate in the community chat groups I found it was just like facebook.  I liked reading about other teacher's experiences and what they are doing in their classrooms as this is where I get most of my ideas from.  I like it better when teachers post up photos or videos from their classroom practise as this is more inspiring.  One of the most beneficial things that I find we do at our school is we share with each other things we are doing in our classroom to do with our Pikau tasks.  This helps everyone to row our waka together.
