Introducing the ABC's

Introducing the ABC's

Kia Ora!

My name is Amelia. I began working at Learning Developments in 2019 as a marketing and digital business student while I was studying at the University of Waikato. Since then, I've gained knowledge in areas of digital education and support for teachers.

 

 

Being the daughter of a primary school teacher, I’ve found myself acting as a teachers assistant for most of my adult life. More recently, this has included:

  • Conducting a Micro:Bit mini lesson with Year 5 students.
  • Assisting them with work on Chromebooks.
  • Providing ideas and resources for distance learning.
I've created instruction graphics, charts and images which are then sent to the class. These graphics include things such as scavenger hunts, daily theme charts, bingo boards and more. This provides students with the opportunity to learn remotely and participate in activities at home or school.

      

    Mastering the abc's

     

    The Amelia Branson Column is designed to be as easy as ABC. It is important that teachers are getting the support they need during this time, and that this support is delivered in a way that is achievable. My main focus is to provide teachers with a service that supports the delivery of engaging and meaningful lessons or activities. There is a lot of value in being able to effectively encourage participation and guided learning, particularly for remote learning situations. 


    I'd love to hear from you about what you’d like to see us create, whether it’s video tutorials, explaining platforms, or bringing new ideas to the table for a variety of age groups. Parents may also find this blog helpful when trying to get their head around acting as a teacher at home, so please contact us if you have any areas where you’d like some clarification.


    In the coming weeks I'll be gathering insights from teachers around the country, seeing what they’re doing to keep students engaged. If you’d like to share your story with us, please message us on Facebook! In the meantime, you can stay up to date with the latest ABC’s by subscribing to our email and liking us on Facebook.
