    themselves

Our Network learning Community is
a group of teachers (Primary &
Secondary) who meet once a term to
share ideas and learning strategies to
improve the classroom experience of
our students.

During 2009 and 2010 we met six
times to work on the principles of
Intelligent Learning. We experimented
with using a
Community of Enquiry in
our classrooms to develop thoughtful
questioning and extended answers
from students.
