My name is Christine Haynes, I am currently ICT Coordinator at Immanuel Primary School where I have the privilege of innovating education through technology. I work with an amazing group of learners (teachers and their R-6 students) who are passionate about learning, reflective in their practice and amplify their pedagogy through technology. Feel free to learn more about our Mobile Learning program at Immanuel Primary’s Mobile Learning website.
I started this blog to share my continuous professional learning journey, and hopefully engage other learners to comment, share ideas and learn from one another. The other aim of this portfolio is to build a collection of evidence against the National Professional Standards for Teachers as an authentic way to build a professional portfolio. Its only in its infancy! I named my blog Innovation Portfolio as I see myself as an innovator, always thinking and experimenting with “next practice”. I also use this blog to share ideas and resources, especially as an adjunct to workshops and presentations.
In my previous role as Professional Development Coordinator for CEGSA (now EdTechSA), I worked with educators across all jurisdictions to help them on their professional learning journeys. I am passionate about the possibilities technology bring to enhance learning. I am an Apple Distinguished Educator and a PYP practitioner.
