A Teaching Moment in Time 2014: iPad winners
This year’s iPad winners
This year’s iPad winners:
Christine Perry, New Zealand
“I was browsing Twitter when I came across 'A Teaching Moment in Time 2014'. I was intrigued by this idea so I investigated further and found all I had to do was take a pic of my students at 11am the next day! I work at a Health School in New Zealand (which involves teaching students too ill to attend their school on a regular basis). So I casually put the idea forward to the 2 students I had with me at 10:30am. They seemed receptive enough so I took the photo and sent it off – not realising that I would be the first person in the world to share a photo for the 'A Teaching Moment in Time 2014'! It was truly awesome to see that come up on the live feed and to be able to show my students that we had 'made history'. They thought it was hilarious! I absolutely love the idea and am really looking forward to taking part again next year.”
Paul Wright, Taiwan, Republic of China
"I had forgotten that there was a chance to win an iPad but it was certainly a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed taking part as did my students. It was a great opportunity to try something different with the class and to share it with the worldwide teaching community. I really enjoyed reading some of the other teaching moments."
Theodora Cimpean, Romania
“The most amazing thing about ‘A Teaching Moment in Time’ is knowing that thousands of teachers all over the world were connected, giving an insight into what this profession means, sharing their thoughts, hopes and ideas for the new school year.
I'm very happy knowing that I'm a little piece of the great puzzle that we all put together on 10th September. I'm also excited by the news of having won and I'm looking forward to using the iPad in my classroom.”
Jo Corrigan, United Kingdom
“It is the first time that we have been involved in ‘A Teaching Moment in Time’ and it was a fantastic opportunity to observe teaching around the world all on the same day. I enjoyed looking at the variety of media sent from other schools, e.g. photos, films, evidence of children’s learning etc. We look forward to participating again next year!”
Anjali Gupta, India
“It is my sheer pleasure to share those teaching moments of my campus for a unique thing like this. I would definitely participate in the future.”
