Lynette Barker, a teacher at St Therese’s Primary School, New Lambton, has been awarded the NGS Scholarship Award for 2012. By attending the Learning Network’s Conference in New Zealand as well as visiting three schools in Auckland, Lynette gained practical knowledge to assist with the roll out of the virtual “Spare Chairs” project as well as continuing her “Embedded Technology” initiative, offering guidance to other teachers and demonstrating ways that technology can be embedded into lessons.
Lynette is a strong advocate for technology in education and believes that bringing children together in an online environment offers exciting opportunities for the development of sound communication skills and the sharing of knowledge. Congratulations Lynette and we look forward to hearing all about the outcomes of your project in due course.
