Jump Start

We are starting Jump Start for our Year 10 students in 2 weeks. This is where they stop being Year 10's and start on their NCEA courses. They have done their options and with the seniors having left for exams, the timetable changes to next year's.
I have decided to make a new site dedicated to jump start.


I am designing it to be full of work and exercises that will give them the skills to get through Level 1 Design and Visual Communication.

  • Sketching and rendering are important drawing skills to take them through any of their design projects. 
  • The research and analysis tabs are the two areas that are key to getting their achievement up into the merit and excellence levels.
  • The Google Plus Community is our place where we work together and support each other.
  • Ako Ngatahi is a new idea for next year.  I want the students to start making the how to's and rewindable learning elements, as well as me. How we present this is up for grabs at the moment - blog, site YouTube channel - I haven't quite decided. 

This site is a work in progress at the moment but if you want to take a look, here is the link. I've got another week to get it complete.
