Mr Peter Dobson

Hi,

I am the teacher of Room 9, which is a combined Year 5 and 6 class, and I am also a Deputy Principal and the Senior Syndicate Leader.

I am in charge of ICT (with Jessica White) at the school and so our class sometimes gets to pilot new software in the school.  Room 9’s buddy class is Rooms 1 and 2 and so we do shared ICT work with them.

In room 9 we are developing an independent learning environment where students have a number of set tasks, but can choose when they do these tasks. The students also have a number of "can do" tasks that are set once the "must do" tasks are completed. For me this is a really interesting time to be teaching as we try to prepare students for an exciting future. 

I can be contacted by email at peterd@kilbirnie.school.nz or through the school office (04) 939 2311.

Peter
